MTS expands data for European bonds

MTS Live users to have access to additional central European countries and Israel, totalling 16 government issuers.

London Stock Exchange Group’s (LSE) fixed income electronic trading platform and market data and indices business unit, MTS, has announced an expansion of data coverage on European bonds.

The expansion will include data from central European countries and Israel, as demand continues to grow for low-latency pre-trade data across the European bond market.

Head of credit markets and data at MTS Simon Linwood explained: “As fixed income market participants continue to adopt increasingly sophisticated electronic trading systems, the need to access meaningful low-latency data sourced from highly liquid bond markets has become important.”

MTS Live customers will have access to market data on securities from 16 government issuers, “enabling them to increase matching opportunities and mitigate latency risk.”

Users of MTS Live will have access to over 30 million quotes and orders generated by the MTS trading community.
