TMX Group today introduced TMX Insights, an integrated set of capabilities that provide financial content, tools and applications, as well as capital markets analytics.
A number of existing capabilities have been grouped together under TMX Insights, including the suite of S&P*/TSX indices, risk management tools such as Razor Risk and TMX Security Risk Ratings, real-time options analytics, as well as eXplore TMX Innovation Lab, which was announced in June 2015. TMX Insights also features a new product offering, TMX Analytics, a data analytics product designed to help our clients make better trading and investment decisions.
TMX Analytics is a cloud-based application that offers extensive real-time and historical information and insight into the Canadian and U.S. capital markets. The new product synthesizes vast quantities of raw data derived from TMX marketplaces and other public markets in Canada and the U.S. and translates it into equity market analytics that provide insight into the behaviour of listed securities and the participants that trade them. Among the key features, TMX Analytics delivers insight into market liquidity and price discovery; provides analysis of routing decisions in a multiple market environment; measures the expected impact of pre-trade models based on market dynamics; and enables post-trade analysis of trading strategies, as well as order flow and transaction cost analysis.
"TMX Analytics is a great example of a technology driven solution designed to help our clients compete in the ever-evolving North American capital markets," says Lou Eccleston, CEO, TMX Group. "By giving meaning to complex market data about listed equities, this high-precision and cost-effective analytics product will increase the effectiveness of our clients' trading decisions and help guide their investment strategies."
