Interactive Data, a producer
of low latency IT and market data feed services, says that it is expanding the
availability of additional Japanese content via its consolidated feed.
In response to demand
from firms for increased access to the Japanese proprietary trading systems,
Interactive Data has added content from two of the leading systems, SBI
Japannext and Chi-X Japan, to its consolidated feed. This will join with
existing access to other local exchanges.
information provider says that its content expansion and low-latency
connectivity in Asia Pacific includes full 7ticks hosting capabilities in Tokyo
and ticker plants in Hong Kong.
7ticks is the brand name for Interactive Data’s global trading infrastructure
services. A ticker plant is the software and infrastructure designed to lower
latency over large geographic distances between trading venues and data centres.
Data has three such plants in the Asia-Pacific region, engineered to process up
to 10 million messages per second and ensure latency is less than 10
milliseconds. The Hong Kong ticker plant helps with the latency when connecting
up Asian venues for clients, who want to trade on all those markets and only
use a single market data and infrastructure provider.
