Trading Technologies launches execution platform in Tokyo

Trading Technologies has extended its execution platform into Tokyo to provide traders with market access through the service.

Software provider Trading Technologies (TT) has launched its execution platform and client connectivity platform in Tokyo.

The move builds on TT’s presence in the Asia-Pacific region, offering traders increased accessibility to low-latency execution via its network of collocated data centres, the firm said.

Currently, TT provides connectivity to Osaka Securities Exchange (OSE) through the Japan Exchange Group (JPX) colocation space, with connectivity to Tokyo Commodity Exchange (TCOM) and Tokyo Financial Exchange (TFX) to be added in the near future.

“Our expansion of the TT platform into Tokyo demonstrates TT’s long-term commitment to the Asia-Pacific region, while showcasing TT’s dedication to providing accessible, reliable, superior trade execution to professional traders worldwide,” said Michael Peters, regional executive sales director at Trading Technologies.

Ryusuke Yokoyama, senior executive officer and CIO at JPX, added that users will acquire market data directly and low-latency trade execution to OSE through the colocation, providing more convenience and smoother trading activities.

TT collocated access to the London Metal Exchange (LME) and the Hong Kong Exchange (HKEX) last year, and plans to expand its colocation further this year through B3’s data centre in Brazil.
