Rick Steves

“Our comprehensive suite of market data solutions and risk management tools will empower GO Markets to elevate their retail brokerage services and deliver real-time, accurate data to their clients. This partnership cements our commitment to enabling firms like GO Markets to thrive in today’s fast-paced financial landscape.”

GO Markets, the leading online provider of CFD trading services founded in Australia in 2006, has chosen Options Technology as its primary market data provider for GO Markets in Asian Markets.

The ASIC-regulated broker, which offers over 1000 tradeable CFD instruments including Forex, Shares, Indices, Metals, and Commodities via several trading platforms, including MT4, MT5, cTrader, mobile trading, and a web-based solution, will now enhance its provision of market data in Asia, with the goal of replicating this success and extending into markets worldwide.

GO Markets chose Options for its risk monitoring, data management, and infrastructure

The strategic partnership with Options Technology will begin with the provision of Hong Kong Stock Exchange data and the redistribution of derived CFD products (Contracts for Difference) to provide a layer of diversification and flexibility for traders seeking new opportunities in the region.

The firms are eager to explore opportunities to expand their collaboration into additional markets, starting with Hong Kong and then expanding across markets in South East Asia.

GO Markets chose Options as its underlying market data provider due to its advanced risk monitoring capabilities, efficient market data management, and globally leading infrastructure.

By leveraging Options’ ACTIV normalized data as the primary technology partner, GO Markets aims to enhance its offerings and provide clients with unparalleled insights and opportunities in the region.

Our comprehensive suite of market data solutions and risk management tools will empower GO Markets to elevate their retail brokerage services and deliver real-time, accurate data to their clients.

Soyeb Rangwala, Director of GO Markets, commented: “Options’ advanced market data capabilities align perfectly with our vision of providing top-notch services to our clients. Their technology and expertise will strengthen our risk management framework and empower us to expand our presence in the Asian markets, offering a seamless trading experience for our valued clients.”

Options Technology facilitates trading at hundreds of venues worldwide with fully managed infrastructure and connectivity available in conjunction with the firm’s private financial cloud services, which combine hosting with direct market access, TCO reduction, and best-in-class resiliency and security.

Last month, Options Technology deployed real-time market data feed from Aquis Stock Exchange and Börse Stuttgart, deployed OPRA in Frankfurt FR2, and expanded onshore trading infrastructure and colocation services in Taiwan.
