    Does anybody use this platform from ABN Amro Sage called Kawabunga? It seems to have options trading more integrated into the whole package. Hows the speed of it, likes/dislikes, etc...? Also, does anybody know of firms offering it besides Greentree?

  2. Its overall a plain jane platfrom...no bells and whistles, very simple to use. Great option platform, and it also lets you executes all instruments. One thing i really like about it is, its the best platform ive used connectivity wise. Its never been down more than a few times, for a few minutes since i started trading on it 4 months ago.

    So you trade options on this platform? Can you see the bids and offers of the implied volatilities. Also how easy is it to quickly bring up your greeks and to graph your positions in real time. Is it easy to move from one thing to another? Can you see the depth of the bids and offers on all the exchanges?

    Also does it really require 512 meg ram?

    The only company right now using Kawabunga is GreenTree as they're in the same building as ABN and used to be their beta testers.
    Keep in mind that Kawabunga is a pure execution platform. As of this it has no integrated charting. However it's able to exectue Equities, Options, Futures and Currency, all from the same platform.
