CQG Expands Network to Mainland China with Shanghai Data Center
CQG, Inc., the industry-leading order execution, charting, and analytics provider for global, electronically-traded securities, announced November 29 that it has established a point-of-presence in Shanghai, connecting its global network to mainland China.
CQG continues to develop its global network and, in recent years, has established a strong infrastructure for trade routing and market data delivery in the Asia-Pacific region, including coverage of Japanese derivatives exchanges. Earlier this year, CQG established Hosted Direct Market Access to the Hong Kong Futures Exchange (HKFE).
“This new connectivity represents CQG’s ongoing commitment to building an exceptional network,” said Leighton Andrew, CQG’s Head of Sales, Asia-Pacific. “China is an enormous market, and we are excited to offer mainland traders access to our high-performance trading platforms and global network of exchange connectivity.”
Establishing connectivity to Shanghai is a sign of CQG’s continued momentum in the region. Through the Shanghai server farm, authorized Chinese traders and partner FCMs are able to connect from China to CQG’s network, including the company’s order routing gateways for low-latency trade execution. This allows traders to access over forty global exchanges for order routing as well as market data from more than one hundred sources worldwide. CQG offers this solution through an ASP model, eliminating the costly need for hardware installation at customer sites. For non-clearing Chinese FCMs, CQG offers omnibus accounts to provide access to CQG’s extensive list of FCM partners for clearing services.
CQG’s front-end platforms include CQG Integrated Client and CQG Trader. The flagship CQG Integrated Client combines professional charting and analytical tools with reliable market data and multiple order routing interfaces. CQG Trader provides order routing functionality together with news, market data, and account management in a streamlined package featuring support for non-English-speaking traders, including a Chinese language version. The CQG Trader API is also available for traders seeking to develop custom solutions using CQG’s data feed and trade routing functionality.
