Interactive Data Corporation (IDC), a global provider of financial market data, is to offer clients real-time data for securities traded on Canada’s Pure Trading execution platform.
Last sale and quote information as well as depth-of-market data is delivered both via PlusFeed, a low-latency datafeed designed to power algorithmic and electronic trading, and eSignal, a well-established real-time provider of market information.
Pure Trading is an alternative Canadian stock exchange provided by CNSX Markets, the exchange group that launched Canada’s first new equity trading venue in 70 years – the Canadian National Stock Exchange – in 2003. The Canadian equity trading market is currently the world’s fourth largest.
Ian Bandeen, CEO and vice-chair of CNSX Markets, said: “The ability to obtain this information from Pure Trading will continue to be important to market data providers as Pure Trading attracts more and more high frequency traders to the Canadian marketplace.”
