Deutsche Börse Improves Connectivity To Event Trading Application For Asian Traders

12/12/2012

Market Data & Analytics is now offering direct connectivity to AlphaFlash Trader in a data center in Sydney. This significantly improves the speed of data transmission for AlphaFlash Trader clients in the Asia-Pacific region. AlphaFlash Trader connectivity is now available in Chicago, London and Sydney.

“The Asia-Pacific region is a growing market for event trading and we want to ensure optimal data transmission for local customers. The new connection point in Sydney obviously benefits users in Australia but also traders as far away as Japan,” said Georg Gross, Head of Front Office Data & Analytics at Deutsche Börse.

AlphaFlash Trader is a trading application that brings automated event driven trading to popular execution platforms. The tool is currently live on X_TRADER® Pro from Trading Technologies International, Inc. and is being adapted to other execution platforms.

AlphaFlash Trader clients can configure trading parameters for more than 300 global macroeconomic indicators (employment releases, housing statistics, etc.) as well as U.S. and international treasury auction data. The application offers a simple drag-and-drop methodology; no programming skills are required. Multiple orders can be entered for different markets and asset classes simultaneously. Orders are automatically executed after release of the economic indicator.

AlphaFlash Trader is available for a 30-day free trial. For more information, please visit: www.alphaflashtrader.com.
