FlexTrade Systems, Inc., a global leader in broker-neutral, multi-asset execution and order management trading systems, today announced that Haitong Futures Co, Ltd., a subsidiary of Haitong Securities, has deployed FlexFutures, its state-of-the-art futures trading system, to connect to the Shanghai Futures Information Technology’s Comprehensive Transaction Platform, which will give Haitong Futures’ clients one-stop English, algo-based access to the following derivatives exchanges: Shanghai Futures Exchange (SHFE), Dalian Commodity Exchange (DCE), Zhengzhou Commodity Exchange (ZCE) and China Financial Future Exchange (CFFEX).
“We often hear clients asking for a good English trading system,” said Lili Wang, Manager of Haitong Futures International Department in Shanghai. “Haitong Futures is well known for pursuing the fastest and most effective IT systems, so one of our goals is to provide a professional one-stop English platform for our clients, such as QFIIs, hedge funds and other international investors for trading in China’s futures markets. After a detailed study, we chose FlexFutures.”
Built to seamlessly integrate with order management systems and other proprietary or third-party systems, FlexFutures comes fully integrated with many rules-based trading strategies, including Pairs, Calendar Spreads and Iceberg, as well as synthetic and contingent order types that are designed to reduce market impact and slippage, minimize risk, and improve trading performance. It is fully scalable and configurable for multiple users over a network, and every user can customize the look of his or her screen.
“We are delighted that Haitong Futures has chosen FlexFutures,” said Manish Kedia, Managing Director of FlexTrade Systems Pte. Ltd. in Singapore. “As derivatives markets become more automated in China, it’s critical for firms such as Haitong Futures to use trading technology platforms such as FlexFutures to help their international clients trade futures in China’s derivatives markets while reducing market impact and minimizing slippage.”
