SmartTrade Technologies, an industry leader in cross-asset liquidity management solutions today announced the certification to CME Group for FX Futures using the smartTrade Technologies LiquidityConnect component.

The smartTrade Technologies LiquidityConnect is a highly configurable trading-connectivity platform that natively supports FIX, FIX / FAST and bespoke protocols for quick time-to-market connectivity.

Harry Gozlan CEO and founder smartTrade Technologies comments: "The connection to the CME was a fast and seamless process for the certification using our software.

smartTrade Technologies LiquidityConnect for FX Product allows enterprises to have access to multiple FX markets from one unified point of connectivity (one normalized view). LiquidityConnect for FX is run as a standalone software product, but is also fully integrated into the smartTrade Technologies L LMS product range. The connectivity in the LiquidityConnect for FX Product has been built by smartTrade Technologies to offer to the market a product that is easy and fast to implement and requires less resources to support. For those organizations that have their own technology, they now have an ability to quickly build a range of functionality around this unified point of connectivity in order to control their costs and enhance their services, including the transformation of Futures prices into synthetic spot equivalent, all at a very low latency.
