NYSE Euronext and Bursa Malaysia have launched a new direct market access (DMA) trading platform for the Malaysian derivatives market.
NYSE Euronext Advanced Trading Solutions will provide the technology for the trading platform, which is the same core technology that is currently used throughout the US and Europe.
This means that Bursa Malaysia member firms will be able to efficiently sponsor and manage client’s direct access to the market, based on NYSE Euronext’s SFTI technology.
“As a node on the global SFTI community, this new solution provides open and global access to our market through a variety of networks and end-user applications, said Omar Merican, chief operating officer of Bursa Malaysia. “The investment we have made in Bursa Trade, our core trading platform, allows us to scale easily so that we can accommodate the increased transaction flow we expect DMA to generate.”
The infrastructure consists of a DMA gateway that offers the low latency and high throughput of DMA combined with the control and risk management of traditional broker-routed flow.
The DMA gateway will also be connected to other nodes on the SFTI network so that it can support international access to the exchange and its members. It will initially support direct leased lines and BT’s Radianz Shared Market Infrastructure.
