Data from the Turquoise MTF, whose members include the largest banks and brokers active in European trading, as well as specialist trading firms and institutions, has been in production on PlusFeed since 15 August 2008 and is available to Interactive Dataâs PlusFeed clients from the commencement of live trading. Since 29 August the Turquoise platform has stepped up its production capabilities and now trades in over 1,250 stocks across 13 European markets ahead of its public launch later in September.
Yann LâHuillier, chief technology officer of Turquoise, said: "We are pleased that lowâlatency data provider Interactive Data is making Turquoise data available to its clients, as we see it as essential that financial institutions are able to access the data we produce as quickly as possible.â
David Hann, general manager, EMEA, Interactive Data Real-Time Services, commented: "Adding Turquoise data to PlusFeed is an important step forward for us.
Since the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) was implemented on 1 November 2007, Interactive Data has seen significant increases in the volume of trades and in the number of instruments on the new data sources available via PlusFeed. And the numbers indicate that this growth is continuing.â
Interactive Dataâs Managed Solutions business will also carry Turquoise data on Market Data Gateway as part of a new ECN package. Market Data Gateway is a fast and flexible open platform enabling the aggregation and normalisation of financial market data from various sources. Interactive Dataâs PrimePortal and PrimeDeveloper clients will have the option of subscribing to the new ECN package, while PrimeTerminal clients will receive the data as part of their contributor data package.
Interactive Data offers a number of new OTC data services via PlusFeed as part of its MiFID product roadmap. These include full coverage of BOAT data, OTC services from the London Stock Exchange, Euronext, Wiener BÃ¶rse, Deutsche BÃ¶rse, PLUS Markets Levels 1 and 2 data, and Chi-X Levels 1 and 2 data.
