Start-up hedge fund takes Panopticon for trading operations

Gislason, president of KMM, runs Panopticon's Treemaps visualisation software on the Explorer platform to filter and highlight market, pricing, and other data relevant to KMM trading strategies.

"There are two strategies I employ, one of which is pairs trading," Gislason explains. "That's done both intra- and inter-sector. I'll go long one energy stock and short another, or I'll go short one basket of energy stocks against shorting a basket of basic materials."

Gislason also uses options trading
