Trading Technologies platform goes live with Athens Stock Exchange derivatives  

All Athens Stock Exchange derivatives products are now available to trade on the Trading Technologies platform including stock and index futures and options.

Chicago-based technology provider Trading Technologies (TT) has launched trading in all derivatives products on the Athens Stock Exchange (ATHEX) via its platform.

Through the newly launched connection mutual clients can trade stock and index futures and options listed on ATHEX using TT’s spread and algo trading tools, charting and analytics, mobile trading, options, FIX services and API development.

“Adding the national exchange of Greece extends our already robust market portfolio in Europe and reinforces our global leadership position. We’re expecting rapid take-up as connectivity was driven largely by demand from some of our largest FCM partners and their clients,” said Steve Stewart, managing director for EMEA sales at Trading Technologies.

TT’s scope now covers six continents, most recently connecting to the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) through an agreement with Applied Derivatives in October. 

Under the terms of the agreement, Applied Derivatives is providing international TT clients with access to the JSE for the trading of all equity and currency derivatives, including futures and options. 

The trading technology provider has recently undergone a leadership reshuffle under its new chief executive officer, Tim Geannopulos, following the departure of its long-standing chief executive officer Rick Lane who left in January to pursue another role.

In February, the firm’s former chief financial officer, Michael Kraines, was quick to follow, announcing that he was also departing to pursue another opportunity. Two executives, Farley Owens and Roger Mills, were appointed as replacements for Kraines by Geannopulos.
