Exchange group NYSE Euronext has added the National Stock Exchange (NSX) to its SFTI network, a low-latency communications system that offers links to exchanges, market centres and content service providers.
Through the addition of NSX, SFTI now offers customers access to all US exchanges, which NYSE Euronext says allows for complete Reg-NMS compliance.
“The announcement of NSX connectivity with SFTI is a step forward in our continued commitment to make NSX easy to access for our customers,” said James Kearney, NSX’s senior vice president of business development and client relations, in a statement. He added that the link will allow clients to access the exchange’s NSX BLADE trading platform and its Depth of Book market data product.
SFTI was set up in 2002. It connects to all of the National Market Systems markets in the US as well as more than 1,300 market participants. SFTI FIX, the system’s OMS-neutral FIX router, provides open, standards-based access for data and trading. NYSE Euronext says SFTI FIX allows customers to get to any destination through a single FIX connection.
NSX is a US securities exchange with offices in Jersey City and Chicago. It was founded in 1885 as the Cincinnati Stock Exchange.
