EasyScreen has signed an exchange connectivity and marketing agreement with electronic trading systems vendor AKJ.
Under the agreement, EasyScreen will develop software to connect its EasyRouter product to AKJ's Trade Server. This will enable any connected EasyScreen user to access AKJ's connections to Sets, NYSE, Nasdaq, Island, Archipelago and numerous other equity exchanges (48 in total) worldwide, in addition to the derivatives exchanges already connected by EasyScreen.
The agreement will allow AKJ to provide brokerage services to EasyScreen users for these connections. The companies intend that AKJ will also be able to offer their users EasyScreen products, such as the EasyTrade front end trading screen, associated trading systems and solutions.
Phillip Docker, chairman of EasyScreen, says: "Connecting to the AKJ Trade Server will enable EasyScreen to offer US and European equities connectivity by a single connection, saving EasyScreen both time and vast resources compared with developing individual connections."
