Cluster Group View - Heat Map

Cluster Group View - Heat Map

The Heat Map shows you which traders or accounts are generating activity that has a high degree of similarity to regulatory cases. Each rectangle represents a group of clusters using color to indicate the level of risk, and size to indicate the number of clusters. These visual cues help you prioritize your cluster group review based on activity that generates the most risk.

Heat Map Display

The Heat Map display is organized into the following sections:

  1. Heat Map: Displays the Heat Map view of the selected data as well as filtering and navigation tools.
  2. Summary Statistics Panel: Shows metrics about the selected data in the current view.
  3. Date Selection Panel: Manages the dates available to TT Score.

Interpreting the Heat Map

The Heat Map groups clusters by trader, instrument, or account, and displays these groups as a collection of blocks. TT Score calculates a risk score for each block based on the clusters in the group represented by that block.

  • The color of a block indicates the severity of the score. Low scores are represented as light green and high scores are represented as red.
  • The size of a block indicates the number of clusters.

  • Metrics for the clusters in each groups are displayed within the block:
    • Max: Highest cluster score.
    • Avg: Average score of clusters within the group.
    • Cnt: Total number of clusters within the group
