Thomson AutEx Order Routing is one of a suite of AutEx products used by trading partners to identify market liquidity and place orders. AutEx facilitates the high-speed transfer of multiple FIX compliant message types over a concentrated global network.

LongView Trading users can now take full control of orders from their blotters by entering essential trading parameters prior to sending the order over the AutEx Network to the sell-side. Automatically generated execution reports allow joint clients to easily monitor and manage trading initiated by the algorithms.

"We are pleased to work with Thomson Financial to deliver this unique functionality to LongView Trading customers," said Annie Morris, senior vice president at Linedata Services, Inc. "Many of our customers use AutEx regularly and will benefit from the new algorithmic trading support.
