CQG, the premier analytics and order routing solution for global electronically-traded futures markets, today announced that it is increasing order routing capabilities by providing trading access directly from the CQG Integrated Client to ICAP's BrokerTec platform for existing BrokerTec clients transacting in U.S. Treasury benchmarks.
Icap's BrokerTec platform is recognized as the premier source of global electronic U.S. Treasury trading.
Leveraging CQG's reputation as the industry-leading global order routing platform for futures traders, current BrokerTec clients can now also use the CQG Integrated Client system to simultaneously route orders for U.S. Treasury benchmark products to the BrokerTec platform and orders for futures contracts to electronic futures exchanges around the world, saving both time and screen space.

In addition, CQG's API offers users the ability to bring incoming market information from the CQG Integrated Client system into external applications and process the information based on their needs.
