Cleartrade Exchange (CLTX) launches consolidated market data portal for commodities futures

19 February 2013

Cleartrade Exchange (CLTX), the Singapore Regulated Futures Exchange that provides an electronic global marketplace for commodity futures and over-the-counter (OTC) cleared derivatives, is launching a new data centre-powered web portal. The CLTX data centre a free portal which consolidates market information for freight and commodity derivatives contracts.

The new portal combines daily data from all the major clearing houses, providing users with the ability to see daily traded lots and open interest figures for the whole market, across all delivery periods. In addition to this CLTX users are able to use a customisable charting and data export function to compare historical daily figures for individual or multiple delivery periods.

“The data centre is a valuable new feature for CLTX’s main offering of a transparent, regulated central marketplace for the execution of both futures and OTC cleared contracts,” said Richard Heath, head of product at CLTX. “A single portal for consolidated data enables users of these contracts to quickly view the trading figures for the previous day. However, the real value of the site is the facility which allows data sets for different delivery periods to be compared against one another, providing an insight into the trading behaviour of the whole market.”

Iron Ore derivatives are available from the data centre today on its 19 February launch date, with Forward Freight Agreements (FFA) contracts and options to follow within the quarter; all the contracts listed on CLTX will be added during the course of this year.
