Trading Technologies Adds Connectivity Services in Tokyo

Blog entry

Trading Technologies (TT) has strengthened its position in Asia-Pacific with the introduction of execution and client connectivity services in Tokyo available via its TT platform, which provides accessibility to low-latency execution through the company’s worldwide network of colocated data centres.

The connectivity covers Osaka Securities Exchange (OSE) through the JPX colocation space, and proximity connectivity to Tokyo Commodity Exchange (TOCOM). Tokyo Financial Exchange (TFX) will be offered in the near future through the AT TOKYO CC2 Premium rack colocation space. This enhanced exchange connectivity model provides traders with direct market access and seamless execution through the TT platform.

Ryusuke Yokoyama, senior executive officer and CIO at JPX, says: “By colocating with JPX, TT provides users with an environment that allows acquisition of market data directly and ultra-low-latency trade execution to Osaka Securities Exchange (OSE). The company is providing one of the most extensive derivatives platform and we hope its participation will improve our users’ convenience and support smoother trading activities.”

Last year, TT announced colocated access to the London Metal Exchange (LME) in London and the Hong Kong Exchange (HKEX) in Hong Kong. In 2018, it plans to offer connectivity through B3’s data centre in Brazil and make additional enhancements to its global infrastructure.
