CQG Connects to Hong Kong Futures Exchange
CQG, Inc., the industry-leading order execution, charting, and analytics provider for global, electronically-traded securities, has announced September 27 its continued expansion in Asia-Pacific with the introduction of its hosted connectivity to the Hong Kong Futures Exchange (HKFE), together with several new FCM partnerships in the region.
Currently, CQG has extensive trading and market data connectivity in Japan, market data coverage in four major Indian exchanges, and trading access in Australia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan. The addition of HKFE is a clear choice to build upon its growth in the Asia-Pacific markets, which is supported by a robust infrastructure and sales and support offices throughout the region.
“Recognizing the significance of APAC markets several years back, we started establishing a presence and have since continued to invest in personnel, infrastructure, exchange connectivity, and FCM relationships in the region,” said Leighton Andrew, CQG’s Head of Sales, Asia-Pacific. “Establishing Direct Market Access to HKFE reflects our ongoing commitment to provide our customers worldwide with powerful coverage of APAC exchanges.”
Through CQG’s Hosted Direct Market Access, traders can now route orders to HKFE, through the exchange’s participants, via CQG Trader or CQG Integrated Client, the company’s flagship platform for low-latency trade execution, global market data, and advanced technical analysis. Major contracts listed on HKFE include futures on the Hang Seng and H-Shares Indexes.
CQG is also actively developing significant FCM partnerships in the APAC region. A number of new partnerships have been formed, with the most recent additions including DMG & Partners Securities Pte. Ltd. and BOC International. CQG is also in the process of finalizing an agreement with ADMIS Singapore Pte. Ltd., among others, to provide their traders with access to CQG.
