CQG, Inc., the industry-leading order execution, charting, and analytics provider for global, electronically-traded securities markets, has enhanced its Russian offering to include spreading of FORTS, the futures and options component of the Russian Trading System Stock Exchange (RTS), and low-latency trade routing to RTS Standard, the equity market for Russian securities, the company announced today at FOW's 4th Annual Derivatives World Russia.
Spread traders now have the opportunity to easily create, trade, and manage both inter- and intra-exchange spread strategies for FORTS products via the server-side CQG Spreader, CQG's industry-leading, low-latency spreader product. CQG's hosted trading gateway provides traders with fast and highly cost-effective access to RTS Standard. CQG customers can route orders to the exchange using the CQG Integrated Client and CQG Trader platforms.
"Adding spreading capabilities and additional connectivity to Russian markets is part of our continued strategy to provide traders access to global markets," said Yuriy Shterk, Vice President of Product Development, CQG. "RTS is one of the most active exchanges in the world and is an important market for both local and foreign traders."
CQG previously offered trade routing and market data for FORTS. The trading connection to RTS Standard is the latest addition to a growing list of exchanges to which CQG provides Direct Market Access.
CQG's network of collocated Hosted Exchange Gateways provides ultra-low-latency trading connectivity to more than forty exchanges worldwide. Trading through CQG is extremely cost-effective and allows traders access to worldwide markets without any infrastructure investment, as CQG is responsible for the installation and maintenance of the market data networks and exchange gateways. CQG's risk engine provides maximum control over customer accounts. The margining system monitors incoming orders and evaluates worst-case scenarios on a real-time basis.
