HELLERUP, Denmark, July 7, 2011 -


Saxo Bank, the specialist in online trading and investment,
today announced the launch of SaxoTrader 2.5, the latest update to
its multi-asset class trading platform. The new version includes
improved navigation and added features to manage positions and
orders, and will be made available to customers in July 2011.

Saxo Bank has replaced the old SaxoTrader menu with an
intuitive, easily navigable ribbon-style toolbar. The menu items
are now grouped by function which takes up less screen space whilst
making the breadth of functions available more accessible and
simple to use. “News and Research” as well as “Account” tabs enable
users to easily access all the information they need. In addition,
new product icons clearly differentiate the various products
tradable on the platform.

Enhanced position management features include a module allowing
users to view and manage positions and related orders in one
integrated workflow. This enables to flexibly close positions, set
stop and limit orders, and provides users with a customisable
display of all open and closed positions. A heatmap visualisation
gives them an additional instant overview of the performance of
their positions.

Henrik Dyrholm Holst, Head of Platform Management at Saxo Bank,

that are rich in data and analytics. SaxoTrader is a multi-asset
trading platform with a specific set of tools for each asset class.
We have therefore focused on making the trading experience for all
types of traders as positive and intuitive as possible, and clearly
guide users through the broad range of features on the

This latest release is a subset of the functionality Saxo Bank
will be adding to SaxoTrader. The Bank will continue to upgrade the
platform in phases this year.
