HORUS TRADING SYSTEM
“Horus is the most exciting, modern, flexible and cost-effective trading system on the market, making it easy for energy producers, retailers, and wholesale users to trade, manage, monitor and optimise their energy portfolio across multiple jurisdictions
A Trading System designed by Traders, for Traders”
Rich User Experience
One of the key differentiators for Horus is the rich user experience, which has been developed and evolved through continual iterative interaction between the Onyx development team and client trading teams. This collaboration has resulted in a simple to use, powerful and intuitive interface that supports efficient and effective analysis, decision making and execution of trading actions.
The use of event-driven architecture allows us to provide information to traders instantly the information is made available, with traders asymmetrically informed simultaneously without the need for browser refresh. Horus uses the same architecture to warn traders when data is updated during the trade creation process to mitigate against trading on “stale” data.
MODULAR AND FLEXIBLE
Horus has been architected as a modular system, with configuration determining the energy market products and jurisdictions available to each client. Client intellectual property is held in a private and segregated custom client module safeguarding know-how and trade secrets, while also allowing for close integration with core Horus components. Additionally, clients can develop intellectual property separately and interface with Horus by extracting and injecting data through APIs
TURNING DATA INTO INFORMATION
INDUSTRY LEADING VISUALISATIONS
Horus collates, calculates, connects, and transforms data, bringing information to life through visualisations and summary views that make it easy to understand, contextualise, monitor, manage, trade and optimise the portfolio
All trade actions within Horus are treated as new immutable transactions, ensuring there is full history of all transactions for complete auditability. We also can configure mandatory trading team commentary for certain actions, such as trading within a gate closure period. Ease of access to this information is invaluable when responding to current and historical compliance queries.
CLOUD OR ON-PREMISES
Horus has been built as a green-fields project using contemporary open source technologies. We deliberately chose technologies that would allow for cost-effective implementations without the need expensive software licensing costs. Onyx’s preferred configuration is to deploy Horus in a Private AWS cloud to take advantage of resilient infrastructure, however as our technology stack is open, clients can also choose to host Horus locally on client infrastructure.
