Trading Technologies International, Inc. (TT) and Sydney Futures Exchange (SFE) today announced TT has launched a high-speed connection to SFE. This new exchange gateway allows TT customers to trade SFE's Australian and New Zealand markets through TT's X_TRADER(R) order-entry software.
The SFE gateway is compatible with X_TRADER 7, the latest version of TT's popular order-entry software launched in January 2006. The initial release supports the following products:
- Single stock futures
- Stock index futures and options, interest rate futures and options, interest rate strips and spreads
- Single session options
- Electricity futures, strips and options on strips and futures
- Currency futures
- Commodity futures and options on strips and futures
"We beta tested TT's new SFE connection with X_TRADER to trade the SFE SPI 200(TM), Bonds and Bank Bills and found the new gateway to be fast and reliable. We feel the combination of TT's new SFE gateway and X_TRADER's sophisticated yet intuitive functionality will give our traders an advantage," said Nick Scarf, CEO of Sydney-based BrokerOne.
"This connection to Sydney Futures Exchange means more trading opportunities for TT's customers around the world. We feel it will be especially appealing to our X_TRADER users in Australia and New Zealand, who now can use one trading platform to access their local exchange alongside the major US, European and Canadian futures markets," said Harris Brumfield, TT's CEO.
"We have seen significant demand for TT's services, particularly from the high velocity traders in the proprietary, CTA and hedge fund sectors. We feel the inclusion of TT amongst our range of ISVs will provide even greater choice for these users when trading SFE products," said Jeremy Johnston, General Manager, Sales and Marketing with SFE.
TT's fast, reliable exchange connections enable trading of the world's major futures exchanges as well as energy, foreign exchange, fixed income and other instruments. All TT gateways are accessible from TT's X_TRADER order- entry screen and through TT's FIX Adapter.
