Rick Steves

“CQG’s broker partners all over the world can now offer CQG’s various leading front-end products and API solutions to their trading clients who want to participate in China’s commodity markets, while the trades can be sent through to Esunny’s infrastructure connected to Chinese exchanges.”

CQG has added connectivity into China’s commodity exchanges via Esunny, a Chinese trading platform provider owned by the Zhengzhou Commodity Exchange.

The trading platform’s initiative further supports Hong Kong and Singapore futures firms facilitating trade into China.

CQG and Esunny have been working together for years to enable Esunny’s front end to offer a wide range of international market accesses, by leveraging CQG’s global connectivity for order routing services.

The new move addresses the growing list of Overseas Special Broker Participants (OSBP) and fulfils other futures brokerage and clearing firms’ requirements.

CQG reaches Hong Kong and Singapore FCMs connected to China

By enhancing its partnership with Esunny, CQG will be able to reach Hong Kong and Singapore futures commission merchants (FCMs) focused on facilitating trades into China.

Rick Chang, General Manager of CQG Greater China, said: “Esunny is one of the major pillars that drives the China commodity market to function dynamically from a technological perspective not only domestically but also with the international trading community. Esunny currently provides technology solutions and services to more than 120 China domestic FCMs, more than 60 Hong Kong-based FCMs and over a dozen FCMs based in Southeast Asia, and it has been on the forefront for years of facilitating cross-border trading activities for mainland China and affiliated markets. Esunny’s core mission of enabling more international participants to trade China markets aligns seamlessly with CQG’s mission in China.

“With the newly added integration between CQG and Esunny, CQG’s broker partners all over the world can now offer CQG’s various leading front-end products and API solutions to their trading clients who want to participate in China’s commodity markets, while the trades can be sent through to Esunny’s infrastructure connected to Chinese exchanges. This added solution via Esunny completes CQG’s comprehensive China integration by allowing both onshore and offshore broker connectivity, which offers more versatility for global trading clients to enter China and benefits many international FCMs which plan to strengthen inflow facilitation with China.”
