BGCantor Market Data (BGCantor Market Data) a leading market data provider and a brand of BGC Partners, (BGC Partners) today announced that Bloomberg will be offering data from ELX Futures (ELX Futures).

Data is distributed for ELX Futures by BGCantor Market Data and will be available on all Bloomberg terminals as well as on B-Pipe upon the launch of the exchange.

ELX Futures, which is owned by a consortium of financial institutions, is scheduled to begin live trading on July 10. Initially the exchange will begin trading Treasury futures contracts on two-year, five-year, 10-year notes and 30-year bonds, as well as calendar spreads. ELX Futures data will be provided free of charge for an introductory period of at least one year.

Market data products currently available from BGCantor Market Data include fixed income, foreign exchange and derivative products from BGC Partners. Bloomberg will offer BGC Partners' US Treasury cash data directly alongside ELX Futures' Treasury futures data, with both available from BGCantor. BGC Partners is also the technology provider for ELX Futures.

Bernie Weinstein, Executive Managing Director of BGCantor Market Data, commented: "We are delighted to have Bloomberg on board as a distributor of ELX Futures' data. Bloomberg was highly professional and efficient in their implementation of the ELX data, doing so quickly and with a minimum of overhead. The implementation offers both real-time best bid and ask and the real-time order book. The combination of BGC Treasury cash and ELX Treasury futures on the same technology platform will provide an edge to those wishing to execute basis trades with no lag."

Neal Wolkoff, Chief Executive Officer of ELX Futures, said, " ELX Futures is pleased to be working with BGCantor Market Data and Bloomberg to distribute ELX Futures data to the marketplace. This is another initiative we are taking to become a competitive alternative in futures trading."
