Colt enters Mainland China with market data available in 7 exchanges
“Colt’s stable, reliable and low latency connectivity has been trusted and certified by its financial customers for over 20 years. The ability to subscribe to these exchange data feeds in a secure, fast and reliable manner is critical to their trading needs”.
Colt Technology Services has expanded its portfolio of Market Data services to incorporate Mainland China through seven exchanges.
The firm’s Market Data services are now available directly from within Hong Kong Stock Exchange’s (HKEX), Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE), Shenzhen Stock Exchange (SZSE), China Financial Futures Exchange (CFFEX), and Zhengzhou Commodity Exchange (ZCE).
Market Data services for the Shanghai Futures Exchange (SHFE), Dalian Commodity Exchange (DCE) and Shanghai International Energy Exchange (INE) will be added in Q3 2021.
Colt is already well established in Europe, North America, and Asia, as it provides comprehensive market data coverage for stock, futures, and commodity exchanges.
The market data provider offers raw and normalised feeds at consistently low latencies, even during periods of volatility, according to the firm.
Customers can access Colt’s market data at the market venues themselves, but can also hire “away consumption” through Colt’s extensive global network and Colt PrizmNet financial extranet .
Colt uses a standard API that eliminates potential speed loss that arises when normalizing and distributing at the source. Bandwidth utilization is monitorable, as well as message rates, dropped packets, and A/B Feed latency deltas (microseconds) of its raw and normalised market data feeds.
Masato Hoshino, Head of Asia and Representative Director & President at Colt, said: “Colt’s stable, reliable and low latency connectivity has been trusted and certified by its financial customers for over 20 years. The ability to subscribe to these exchange data feeds in a secure, fast and reliable manner is critical to their trading needs. We will continue to expand our Market Data coverage and low latency network, and invest in our software development, to provide more agile, flexible and secure services to our customers.”
In April 2021, Colt introduced ultra-low latency connectivity routes, Market Data and Managed Services in Thailand to improve the access to liquidity between Bangkok and other major capital cities in Asia.
The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) has since improved speed to connect with the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEX) and the Singapore Exchange (SGX) in a period of increased trading volumes across the globe.
Colt has recently opened a new Point of Presence (PoP) for its PrizmNet infrastructure in Sydney, expanding the capability of its Market Data services in Australia.
Colt’s Market Data provides feeds for equities, derivatives, commodities, and FX from more than 50 exchanges and liquidity venues worldwide.
