Frame-by-frame real-time graphical and numerical presentation of the actual and change in forecast (ECMWF and GFS forecast models). Updated as each time step of the model is released.

The proximity of Speedwell’s London office to ECMWF coupled with streamlined model processing on dedicated servers results in fast delivery of ECMWF forecast changes to the market. Client feedback indicates that we are usually ahead of the competition.
The FastCast® product has been designed with input from traders. The goal is to present the information rapidly and in a straight-forward manner: "warmer or colder..."?
