“Our UK cash equities service is an excellent complement to the other ultra low latency wireless market data and private bandwidth services we offer in Europe.”

McKay Brothers International has announced the launch of its low latency market data service, distributing Cboe UK cash equities raw data at the London Stock Exchange via its wireless QRD service.

Cboe UK equities data is sourced at Slough-LD4 and distributed at the LSE’s Telehouse North 2 data center. The QRD service distributes the full Cboe UK CXE and BXE feeds in their native exchange format.

“Fastest Cboe UK cash equities data at the LSE”

Francois Tyc, Managing Director of McKay Brothers International, said: “We are thrilled to offer traders the fastest Cboe UK cash equities data at the LSE. Our UK cash equities service is an excellent complement to the other ultra low latency wireless market data and private bandwidth services we offer in Europe.”

McKay Brothers International distributes both raw and normalized market data to key exchange-trading European hubs in London, Frankfurt, Bergamo/Milan, Zurich and Madrid.

The company sources data from the world’s most important financial exchanges, including Eurex, ICE-Liffe, the London Metal Exchange, Cboe and the CME Group. MBI’s extensive ultra-low latency European private bandwidth services connect the UK, Frankfurt, Zurich, Milan/Bergamo and Madrid.

McKay extended market data service into Shanghai

Earlier this year, McKay Brothers International’s Josada team extended its lowest latency market data service into Shanghai, by connecting to local exchanges such as the Shanghai Futures Exchange (SHFE) and Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE).

The firm’s QED service provides low latency connectivity for select CME and ICE Futures market data, including energy, metals, FX, agricultural/softs, and equities.

McKay’s Quincy Extreme Data (QED) platform is a normalized market data feed of select instruments from leading financial exchanges around the world. QED services are tailored to meet the needs of both: firms seeking the lowest latencies as well as firms whose value equation focuses on latency improvements over even the fastest fiber.

McKay previously announced the availability of its lowest latency market data between Illinois and Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
