Thomson Reuters today announced the live launch of a market data delivery solution for the Tokyo Stock Exchange's new Arrowhead Platform.
Clients saw flawless performance from Thomson Reuters direct and consolidated feeds so that they could immediately take full advantage of the increased performance and access to full depth of order book data provided by the Exchange.
The flexible delivery options offered by Thomson Reuters Data Feed Direct provides high performance solutions to both TSE Arrowhead FLEX Standard and Full Book, offering all clients open access to full market depth information with microsecond data normalization, distribution and ease of integration within applications. More than 15 Thomson Reuters direct feed customers participated in the Exchange's dress rehearsals and then simultaneously went live with the launch of the new exchange platform on 4 January 2010.
In addition, customers can connect the direct feed into their own data centre, the Tokyo Stock Exchange's co-location facility or leverage Thomson Reuters proximity hosting solution, which offers both managed Thomson Reuters Market Data System middleware platform or a direct connection via their application programming interface.
For less latency sensitive application and desktop requirements the Thomson Reuters consolidated feed for the TSE system also offers increased market depth and improved performance drawing positive reviews.
