Bentley, Brian Smith
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis considers the application of real-time digital information systems to the field of professional trading of commodities. Pertinent factors involved with the interfacing of a monitor system with a commodity exchange, and with professional trading interests, are considered. Skeletal functional outlines of factual and predictive displays are proposed from the monitoring of a general market environment to the monitoring of specific user positions in the environment. Elements of a monitoring system are implemented on an IBM 360-67 configured with an IBM 2250 Graphic Display Unit operating with OS/MVT. Due to the highly subjective nature of commodity decision-making, a scarcity of relevant published information in this area, and the author's lack of extensive trading experience, this thesis addresses itself only to the acquisition, summarization and presentation of objective information. Any presumption of data interpretation is left to the user.
