CQG, the industry-leading order execution, charting, and analytics provider for global electronically-traded futures markets, today announced it has expanded its Direct Market Access to include the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), an operator of electricity and natural gas futures and options markets in Australia and New Zealand.
CQG customers will have access to trade ASX's Australian Feed Barley, Australian Sorghum, Australian Milling Wheat, and Western Australia Wheat contracts and the Mini S&P/ASX 50, 200, and 200 Property Trust indexes. These contracts are available on both the CQG Trader and CQG Integrated Client advanced trading platforms.
"CQG traders have told us they want access to more markets and more exchanges, particularly in the Asia-Pacific regions," said Josef Schroeter, President of CQG. "Our goal is to provide traders with access to these markets with the lowest possible latency and highest possible reliability."
ASX is the tenth Asia-Pacific exchange that CQG has added in the last three years. CQG now offers trade routing connectivity to the Hong Kong Futures Exchange (HKFE), Korea Exchange (KRX), Osaka Securities Exchange (OSE), Singapore Exchange (SGX), Sydney Futures Exchange (SFE, a subsidiary of ASX), Taiwan Futures Exchange (TAIFEX), Tokyo Commodities Exchange (TOCOM), Tokyo Financial Exchange (TFE), and Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) in addition to more than twenty-five major futures, forex, and cash treasury markets worldwide.
