Visualization of High Frequency Financial Data Proposed period of internship

Cyborg Trading Systems (CTS) was founded by a group of successful traders, and highly skilled programmers. The CTS team is committed to continuous innovation in order to create dynamic, cutting edge software to meet the current and future needs of customers. CTS is currently working on designing „Market Studio‟ as a new product for analyzing high frequency financial data. In its commitment to providing cutting edge elegant designs for visualizing high frequency financial data within Market Studio, CTS has recruited the help of the Advanced Interface Design Lab (AIDL), who specializes in advanced techniques for developing highly usable interfaces. For this project, AIDL has proposed to undertake a four-phase concept generation approach starting by obtaining the required knowledge to deal with the financial market data, then developing brand new data visualization ideas for the Market Studio using digital media, while taking an in-depth look at the latest trends in interface design and visualization. This approach provide the intern and the CTS team with insights leading to a medium fidelity interface design prototype and usage scenarios that may enter the software design stages in the Spring of 2011.
