TAIFEX Derivatives Market Ultra provides enhanced view of TAIFEX market.

Today, Deutsche Börse and Taiwan Futures Exchange (TAIFEX) announce the launch of a new data product – TAIFEX Derivatives Market Ultra.

It provides pre- and post-trade market data on occurrence, in contrast to the core product which continues to provide snapshots eight times per second. Bids, offers and traded prices are aggregated on price level for both products.

“The product launch marks another milestone in the successful market data partnership between Deutsche Börse and TAIFEX. Under the partnership, which has been in place since 2016, Deutsche Börse acts as licensor of TAIFEX market data to all international clients. Clients can conveniently access data products offered by both exchanges under a single license agreement,” says Alireza Dorfard, Head of Data Services at Deutsche Börse.

TAIFEX Derivatives Market Ultra includes data on all derivatives tradeable on TAIFEX, including TAIFEX’s flagship products TAIEX futures, TAIEX options and Mini-TAIEX futures. These are three of the most successful equity index derivatives contracts in Asia. TAIEX (the Taiwan Stock Exchange Capitalization Weighted Stock Index) is the most widely followed of all Taiwan Stock Exchange Corporation (TWSE) indices. The data product delivers bids and offers up to an order book depth 5. Pre- and post-trade information is provided un-netted, i.e. bids, offers and prices are distributed as they occur.

Deutsche Börse provides market data from Taiwan’s leading derivatives exchange in two product versions: Core (netted data) and Ultra (un-netted data). Both products provide level 1 and level 2 market data from TAIFEX. The products contain data for all derivatives tradeable on TAIFEX including TAIEX futures and options.

  • Level 1 provides the best bid and ask price along with the respective order volumes and corresponding reference data.
  • Level 2 contains all information provided in level 1 but includes the five best bid and ask prices and the respective volumes.

Deutsche Börse is the licensor of TAIFEX information products to international clients. The information product is disseminated via direct data feeds from TAIFEX and indirectly through vendors.
