Trading Technologies has partnered with Huatai Futures to provide connectivity to the Chinese international derivatives markets through the TT platform. Huatai’s global customers will be able to trade Chinese international derivatives products listed on the China Financial Futures Exchange (CFFEX), Dalian Commodities Exchange (DCE), Shanghai Futures Exchange (SHFE), Shanghai International Energy Exchange (INE) and Zhengzhou Commodity Exchange (ZCE) via the TT platform.
Mark Pottle, Regional Executive Sales Director for Trading Technologies in Asia, said: “We are thrilled to announce Huatai Futures has chosen the TT platform as a solution to support international clients’ access to trade China. By partnering with Huatai Futures, we are immediately building on our commitment to provide a best-in-class experience for our customers.”
Elf Chen, Deputy General Manager of Huatai (Hong Kong) Futures Limited, commented: “This partnership with Trading Technologies comes at a time when China is opening up its listed derivatives markets for global investors while overseas-listed derivatives markets are getting more and more attention from Chinese investors. Together with TT, Huatai can now provide a one-stop solution for overseas and Chinese institutions at the highest global standard.”
In late 2019, Trading Technologies became available to SBI Thai Online clients. The Bangkok-based broker and subsidiary of SBI Group started to provide international clients with access to the Thailand Futures Exchange (TFEX) via the exchange’s proprietary EMAPI API from within TFEX’s SET Dat
a Center in Bangkok. Its client base gained access to TT’s full range of professional trading tools, including Autospreader, ADL, and APIs. The firm offers trading software, infrastructure, and data solutions for proprietary traders, brokers, money managers, CTAs, hedge funds, commercial hedgers, and risk managers. TT also offers domain-specific technology for cryptocurrency trading and machine-learning tools for trade surveillance.
The Chicago-based firm has also recently hired two new executives to serve in senior-level leadership roles. Russ Cotton and Craig Mohan are covering the roles of Chief Operating Officer and Chief Growth Officer, respectively.
In October 2019, Trading Technologies made available all derivative products listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) Derivatives Market on the TT platform. Also that year, the firm expanded its execution and client connectivity services through the ICE Data Services European Liquidity Center (EULC) in Basildon, UK. The expansion gives access to trade 55 markets through the TT platform but clients also have the option to run their own TT platform components on private infrastructure in the data center through TT Prime.
