Matrics - Analyze Historical Data
Easy Charting

All price data entered or imported into Matrics is stored in a data base owned by the customer. The data is available in the Matrics client for charting, export, and analysis. Matrics comes with an easy-to-use but still very powerful charting and analysis module. Charting a price series is no more difficult than locating the series in a folder structure (similar to the Windows explorer) and drag it to a chart.

The historical price data base can store large amounts of data. Because all series are automatically organized into a hierarchical folder tree according to index (e.g. PM4TC), period (e.g. Cal-10), and price source (e.g. Imarex Closing) it is still very easy to locate the series of interest. The tree can also be reorganized and searched in various ways.

A number of basic operations and transformations can quickly be applied to the series in the chart, including changing time resolution (Day, Business Day, Month, Quarter, Year, etc.) and scaling (e.g. charting ratios between single routes and average routes). Moving averages, trend-lines, etc. can easily be added to visualize trends in the data. The data in any chart can be shown in a numerical display or exported to Excel with a click of a button.

Powerful Time-Series Calculator

Matrics comes with a powerful "time-series calculator", which allows the user to build arbitrarily complex time series expressions. Calculations that would take a lot of time and be a major pain to do in Excel, are set up in seconds with a few clicks and drag/drop. The calculator provides functionality that will make it easier for organizations to make the right decisions. The decisions will be
based on analysis instead of assumptions, and it will be fun to
do so. See here for a few examples.

Updated Charts Available When You Need Them

When the user closes the application, Matrics will remember the layout of all open windows, including all charts. The next time the application opens, all charts will come up with exactly the same series, defined expressions, and layout (but the actual series data will be updated in real time). A user can thus arrange his screen with charts displaying any series of interest and the most recent development of these will always be immediately available. Using Matrics' layout functionality, it is also easy to define any number of different screens and switch quickly between them. Chart definitions can also be saved to the data base to be shared with the rest of the organization.
