Currency Trading Dashboard – Screenshot of a trade management dashboard

Filed under: Dashboard Screenshots — dashboardspy @ 4:03 am

Thanks to a rather sneaky Dashboard Spy, we have this enterprise dashboard screenshot from a large financial institution’s trade management system. This dashboard shows positions, a maturity profile, deal statistics, deal action status, recent deals and a “pick a task” portlet.

I did some research and this looks like it is based on the Sungard Avantgard treasury management dashboard product (see

Treasury Trading Deal Dashboard

Homework: This is a complicated field of dashboarding to attempt if you don’t have trading systems experience. If you like the sink or swim approach, better start with these books on trading treasuries.

So what or who is The Dashboard Spy? As his about page states, The Dashboard Spy is just a guy interested in the design of enterprise dashboards. He could not find any executive dashboard design source books (or even screenshots of real business dashboards) and so set about creating his own. Finally convinced to post his extensive collection of dashboard screenshots online, he was amazed to find how popular it has become. If you have a nice screenshot of a digital dashboard, balanced scorecard, or any business intelligence graphic to share, please send an email to info _at_ Also check out The Dashboard Spy’s favorite books on business dashboards.
