Deutsche Börse adds CME Group’s derivatives data to analytics platform A7
“Our customers have a strong demand for data on global derivatives markets.”
Deutsche Börse has announced it will include historical market data from global derivatives marketplace CME Group on its cloud-based online analytics platform A7.
The expanded market data offering on the A7 Analytics platform allows market participants to test their trading strategies and make highly-informed trading decisions by subscribing to market data sets from either, or both, exchanges.
Deutsche Börse reached a licensing agreement with CME Group for its global derivatives market data which will make historical data available daily on a T+1 basis, and, initially, will include data from each of its four designated contract markets – the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT), Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME), Commodity Exchange (COMEX) and New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX).
The new data sets from CME Group, which will be available from June of this year, address customer requests for comprehensive market data that they can access via a single interface.
Strong demand for data on global derivatives markets
Alireza Dorfard, Head of Market Data + Services at Deutsche Börse, said: “Our customers have a strong demand for data on global derivatives markets. Through the cooperation with CME Group, they can now obtain and analyse this data easily and promptly via A7. We will continue to expand our data offering to meet the needs of our clients.”
Trey Berre, Global Head of Data Services at CME Group, commented: “Our market data is optimized for use with A7’s analytics engine, bringing together high-quality derivatives benchmarks with tailored trading strategies for profitability and risk management. This robust combination of data and analytics, accessed through services like Deutsche Börse’s cloud-based platform, enables a broader community of investors to identify actionable insights with greater speed and less complexity.”
Deutsche Börse’s A7 users can simultaneously access extensive market data from Eurex, Xetra and EEX to trade more efficiently or to develop and test execution algorithms more easily.
The A7 analytics platform was launched in July 2020 as a user-friendly environment built directly into the clients’ front-end without the need to operate their own data warehouse.
In mid-2021, the platform introduced intraday market data to provide more flexibility to market participants that can use intraday data to react much faster to market developments and optimize their trading strategies accordingly.
A7 supports clients in maximizing trading efficiency and alpha generation, and developing and testing execution algorithms, among other use cases.
The platform also provides easy access to market data via state of the art interfaces. The customer can decide which tool he chooses – from C++ to even MS Excel – to integrate market data.
