Bahrain Bourse and NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:NDAQ), today announced that Bahrain Bourse has gone live with their new trading engine, powered by NASDAQ OMX's X-stream trading platform.

The project went live on Monday, July 14, providing Bahrain Bourse with the world's most widely deployed, multi-asset trading platform.

"Replacing our trading platform is a milestone in the history of the Kingdom of Bahrain's capital market, and is one of the key projects of the Bourse's strategy that was adopted in 2011 to develop all work aspects at Bahrain Bourse," said The Shaikh Khalifa bin Ebrahim Al-Khalifa, CEO, Bahrain Bourse. "I extend my thanks to the Bourse's Board of Directors for their tremendous support and facilities they have provided to the executive management, as well as our technology partner NASDAQ OMX."

The new platform will enable Bahrain Bourse to enhance trading options for investors and a variety of market participants, as well as create innovative products and services to match international demand. In addition to the new X-stream technology, the exchange will also continue to leverage the existing CSD technologies that have been provided and supported by NASDAQ OMX since 2000.

"As Bahrain Bourse continues to develop as an exchange leader in the region, we are thrilled to support them on the launching our X-stream technology, as well as their efforts in promoting a transparent and efficient market for all market participants," said James Martin, General Manager, Middle East and Africa, NASDAQ OMX.
