  2. What about other exchanges?

    There is no change for other exchanges, except CME. Brokers (FCMs) are likely to considered re-distributors of market data for all exchanges in TTNET. For further details, refer to Market Data Users.

  3. What about single broker environment?

    The announced changes are only related to TT’s Multibroker solution. Brokers (FCMs) must work with all exchanges they connect to through TTNET to verify their potential status as re-distributors of market data. For further details, refer to Market Data Users.

    Over time with the next-gen TT platform, we plan to serve as vendor of record for market data on every exchange where it is practical. We will take on the reporting, entitlement control, audit and invoicing responsibilities. We will be billed for customers’ market data use, and we will aggregate data fees across exchanges and rebill them to the customer.
