entry-chart-150x150.png“We have been very pleased with our relationship with Vela (formerly OptionsCity) to the point that we recommend their services to our colleagues seeking model vendors. What immediately impressed us was how Vela built this model; they obviously started with a clean sheet of paper. Their model is in stark contrast to some other offerings that have patchwork layers upon layers. Parameters can easily be adjusted from a handheld on the trading floor, as well as from a desktop on a risk desk. Additionally, the instant access to support is indispensable; even on weekends. I look forward to working with them for years to come.”

-Jeff Kupets, Managing Member Mustang Trading, LLC
