Exegy Incorporated, the ultra-high performance market data appliance company, today announced that the Exegy Ticker Plant has added built-in market data feed handlers to process data from Omega ATS, providing Exegy clients the ability to access the alternative trading system's trading data using Exegy's hardware-accelerated market data appliance.
Omega ATS is an alternative trading system for Canadian exchange-listed equities. Omega ATS rewards subscribers that contribute to price discovery, and keeps overall marketplace fees as low as possible. Dealers who use Omega ATS enjoy significant price and speed advantages.
"High Frequency Trading is now a global phenomenon. Our high frequency trading customers noted that competitive markets and low cost execution has come to Canada, the world's fourth largest trading market. And that is why we have tuned our product for Canadian data," said Jeff Wells, Vice President of Product Management at Exegy.
"We're pleased that Exegy customers will now be able to access Omega ATS trading data," said Greg King, Chief Operating Officer at Omega ATS. "Our approach from day one has been to work with the traders to provide great prices, competition and as much choice as possible, and today's announcement is an example of that strategy in action. The ability to obtain fast direct feed data from Omega ATS will continue to be important to market participants as we continue to attract more and more high frequency traders to the Canadian market."
