HONG KONG, September 21, 2017 — Trading Technologies International, Inc. (TT), a global provider of high-performance professional trading software, today announced the availability of execution and client connectivity services through the Hong Kong Exchange and Clearing (HKEX) data center via its TT® platform.
Colocating with HKEX strengthens TT’s global presence, allowing TT users around the world to easily obtain seamless, reliable, high-performance exchange access, direct market data and superior trade execution. This move also enhances the company’s connectivity services, providing clients in Asia/Pac with an additional regional market access point to TT’s worldwide network of colocated data centers.
Through the HKEX data center, TT provides colocated access to the HKEX derivatives markets, delivering direct market data and superior trade execution to global TT users. Traders who relied on other connectivity solutions can now obtain seamless, reliable, high-performance access to the HKEX markets through the TT platform.
“We welcome Trading Technologies to our data center, where our market participants have access to an array of information, technology and network service providers within a secure ecosystem environment,” said Jonathan Leung, HKEX’s Head of Hosting Services.
Jonathan Ferreira, TT Director of Customer Success, Asia/Pacific, said, “We are excited to be adding HKEX to our suite of colocated exchanges on the TT platform. The significance of this announcement goes beyond the ability to offer a high-performance, low-latency trading solution for our users trading HKEX. It highlights our commitment to offering professional traders a smarter, faster and more robust route to exchanges around the globe.”
Additionally, TT Reserved and TT Prime premium services are now accessible in Hong Kong. TT Reserved allows traders to run automated trading strategies on dedicated servers within the data center, and TT Prime leverages the TT Reserved infrastructure for maximized spread trading performance on a custom-built Autospreader®.
“G. H. Financials is excited to see Trading Technologies continue their expansion in the APAC region with their build-out in the Hong Kong Exchange data center,” said Julian O’Leary, Managing Director of Development & Technology at G. H. Financials. “As our business continues to grow in this region, it is always positive to see this supported by a vendor partner who also continues to grow their footprint. G. H. Financials HK Ltd became a clearing participant of HKFE Clearing Corporation Limited (HKCC) in 2014 and has seen considerable growth on this exchange, adding to our global exchange presence. We are encouraged to see continued development in this region, and more connectivity options and solutions for our clients.”
Earlier this year, TT announced colocated access to the London Metal Exchange (LME) as well as easy access to additional markets, including ICE Futures Europe, Euronext and the Dubai Gold and Commodities Exchange (DGCX), through a presence in Interxion’s London data center. In addition to HKEX, TT plans to connect with the Brazilian-based B3 Data Center within the next year and make other enhancements to its global infrastructure in the Asia/Pacific region.
