Sydney Futures Exchange - "Equity Quest"


Equity Quest is financial marketing software distributed to investment companies and Futures users throughout North America and Asia. The program is designed to 'show case' traded contracts and services available through the Sydney Futures Exchange (SFE).

An important feature of the software is the accurate simulation of trading in Share Price Index (SPI) and the new Individual Share Futures (ISFs) from the viewpoint of a Floor Trader or Professional Hedger. A re-creation of trading screens allows users to buy and sell in response to price movements. Cyclical prices are affected by more than 100 randomised 'newsflashes' that occur throughout trading simulation.

SFE products discussed include Share Price Index (SPI) futures and options. Individual Share Futures (ISF), Bonds, Bank Acceptance Bills and Wool Futures.

The software also includes an interactive directory of SFE members.
