Reuters has increased the number of venues available via Reuters Data Feed Direct (RDF-Direct) by adding six new venues to its direct exchange data service in locations across Asia and Europe. The move will meet growing demand from customers for ultra low-latency and full-tick data to feed algorithmic and machine trading applications, and builds on the existing set of North American, European and Asian RDF-Direct venues.

The additional feeds from RDF-Direct now include the Korean Stock Exchange, Tokyo Stock Exchange Flex, Osaka Securities Exchange, Euronext Cash, Euronext Liffe and Deutsche Borse XETRA. All the feeds offer level 1 & 2 coverage. RDF-Direct is the fastest direct access feed available offering total latency of less than one millisecond.

Reuters is the only provider offering a globally supported and fully managed direct feed service and is committed to expanding venue availability throughout 2007 across all regions, as well as adding asset classes.

Mike Powell, Global Head of Real-Time at Reuters Enterprise Information said: “The addition of these new major markets to our direct feed portfolio is a significant achievement that shows our commitment to supporting our customer’s businesses. Reuters is dedicated to offering the lowest latency and providing the most comprehensive service to our customers. We plan to continue our expansion of direct feed venues this year as a key part of our global data distribution strategy.”
