RTS Realtime Systems Group (RTS) today announced that it now offers DMA (Direct Market Access) connectivity for low-latency, high frequency traders to BM&FBovespa, Brazil's securities, commodities and futures exchange.
The new native connectivity comes with comprehensive pre-trade risk functionality that was audited and approved by the exchange and now can be used via DMA 1 and DMA 2 connectivity.
The Exchange's DMA 1 model consists of the routing of orders via a local brokerage house's technological infrastructure while the DMA 2 model orders are routed via a third party or DMA provider.
Through RTS, global clients can gain immediate access to the burgeoning financial markets in Brazil, tapping arbitrage opportunities and local financial instruments, ensuring they are receiving top-tier service, mitigating operational risks and abiding by Brazilian regulatory approvals and procedures. As one of the first fully certified vendors of the exchange, RTS provides access to the exchange's FIX-based Unified Market Data Feed (UMDF) and EntryPoint application programming interfaces (APIs).
Timo Pentner, RTS Managing Director, Americas, said: "We are proud to be the first vendor with a low latency, high frequency pre-trade risk management system certified by the exchange. We moved quickly and have adapted to recent regulation changes. Customers seeking DMA 1 and DMA 2 connectivity to BM&FBovespa can benefit from both this functionality and RTS' robust and reliable technology."
The Brazilian Exchange offers equities, securities, financial assets, indices, interest rates, agricultural commodities, as well as foreign exchange futures and spot contracts.
