CQG, a leading software provider for global financial markets, announced today that it has expanded its connection with Moscow Exchange (MOEX), the leading exchange in Russia, to now provide equities and FX trading via CQG’s API division Continuum.
This solution enables customers using CQG products to trade equities and FX on MOEX. CQG has been a partner of MOEX since 1998, previously providing customer access to MOEX’s derivatives markets.
“MOEX is an important venue for our clients who seek to access diverse global markets,” said Mike Glista, CQG's Director of Order Routing and Vice President of Continuum. “We are pleased to expand our relationship in order to offer our clients more trading opportunities in the Russian markets.”
MOEX is among the top 30 leading stock exchanges worldwide. It plays host to the most active derivative contract in the world by number of contracts, the USD/RUB future (FIA 2015 data), and in the FX cash market the USD/RUB pair is the largest FX instrument. These two products combined trade USD 25bn to USD 30bn every day.
“CQG is recognized as one of the premier trading systems in the global landscape,” said Tom O’Brien, Head of International Sales, MOEX. “Moscow Exchange is a multi-asset venue where equities, cash FX, swaps and commodities are all traded and we understand the importance that CQG brings to basis trading, curve trading and basket trading in MOEX’s markets. We are pleased that traders can now benefit and develop their trading opportunities via CQG’s suite of trading tools and effectively use them to trade all of our world class markets – equities and FX cash as well as derivatives.”
