Online trading is big business, which can allow its users to make a fortune or make themselves go bankrupt without ever leaving the comfort of a PC chair. Virtual reality (VR) offers users a different way of looking at the numbers involved in this complex business, and Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group subsidiary Kabu.com is offering exactly this functionality.
VR solutions are becoming increasingly popular in the business world, being used in a variety of ways, but VR usage in online trading has so far only been offered by very few companies, a group that Kabu.com now joins.
Kabu.com Securities Co. Ltd is a Japanese brokerage firm, and it has recently revealed plans to demonstrate a new VR solution at CEATEC Japan 2018.
CEATEC, or the Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies is an annual trade show in Japan, which has been held every year since 2000 and is regarded by many analysts as the Japanese equivalent of the Consumer Electronics Show. This year’s event is due to take place from 16th-19th October at Makuhari Messe, Chiba, Japan.
Kabu.com are intending to exhibit the new VR platform, known as VR-STATION at the trade show. VR-STATION is designed to offer new styles of investment to traders by utilising kabu.com’s open API.
VR-STATION can be used to create a trading room in VR space, which allows for all the information involved in trading stocks, such as stock price information, charts, boards and news tickers to be displayed without worrying about the limits of physical space.
During CEATEC company representatives will be conducting walkthroughs of the software and gathering feedback from attendees who try out the software and other potential users.
Other companies have offered VR solutions which can display complex financial information in easy-to-understand charts and graphs, making the information easier for users to graphs quickly.
