Deutsche Börse to include CME Group market data on its A7 analytics platform

New data will enable market participants to test their trading strategies and make trading decisions by subscribing to market data sets from one, or both, exchanges.

The market data offering on Deutsche Börse’s cloud-based analytics platform A7 has been expanded to incorporate historical market data from global derivatives giant, CME Group.

Market players will be able to test their trading strategies and make informed trading decisions by subscribing to market data sets from one, or both, exchanges through the A7 platform, thanks to a new licencing agreement between the two organisations.

CME Group’s historical data will be provided daily on a T+1 basis, with data from each of its four designated contract markets – the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT), Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME), Commodity Exchange (COMEX), and New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) – initially included.

CME Group will make these new data sets available from June this year.

“Through the cooperation with CME Group, [our customers] can now obtain and analyse this data easily and promptly via A7. We will continue to expand our data offering to meet the needs of our clients,” said Alireza Dorfard, head of market data and services at Deutsche Börse.

Deutsche Börse’s incorporation of CME Group’s market data follows the addition of Eurex Open Interest Insights to its analytics portfolio announced earlier this year. Users will gain insight into market positioning and dynamics, as well as futures and options markets, through the new offering.

“Our market data is optimised for use with A7’s analytics engine, bringing together high-quality derivatives benchmarks with tailored trading strategies for profitability and risk management,” said Trey Berre, global head of data services at CME Group.

“This robust combination of data and analytics, accessed through services like Deutsche Börse’s cloud-based platform, enables a broader community of investors to identify actionable insights with greater speed and less complexity.”
