U.S. Bond Reference Data Via Apex(SM) and Real-Time TRACE(R) Data Feeds Expand Pre-Trade Price Discovery and DelphX Subscriber Capabilities
Interactive Data Corporation, a leading provider of global pricing, reference and corporate actions data, is providing DelphX, the forthcoming neutral Alternative Trading System for informed all-to-all trading of fixed income securities, with U.S. fixed income reference data and real-time and historical FINRA® TRACE® data. This capability will allow DelphX to deliver dynamic global access to a robust set of current and historical transaction data, along with continuous fixed income pricing that can help clients to meet fair value requirements.
Specifically, Interactive Data is providing the key reference, historical and real-time data feeds that DelphX employs to calculate and validate its MAVEn™ prices. Integration of this data into the DelphX platform will enable dynamic security searches, analyses and informed trading among a broad array of potential counterparties, continuous publication of current MAVEn prices for more than 25,000 listed issues, and anonymous all-to-all trading among its global subscribers.
“We are pleased to team with DelphX to offer a wide range of our data feeds, which can help them provide transparency for the fixed income markets, validate fixed income prices and facilitate new trading opportunities for market participants,” said Mark Hepsworth, President of Interactive Data’s Pricing and Reference Data business.
Interactive Data is providing DelphX with its reference data for U.S. government bonds and U.S. corporate bonds via Apex, its suite of reference data services. As a result, DelphX subscribers, which include fixed income buy-side and sell-side market participants, can access the continuous DelphX MAVEn prices derived from this and other data, as well as TRACE® data via Interactive Data’s real-time feeds.
“DelphX is committed to providing a transparent and level playing field to market participants, facilitating deep price-sensitive liquidity sourced by issuers and buy-side and sell-side firms, as well as centralized order interaction and dynamic risk and opportunity management among market participants,” said Larry Fondren, President and CEO of DelphX. “Our innovative technology, combined with Interactive Data’s depth of reference data and real-time global data feeds, ensures that our upcoming market entry will provide a comprehensive solution for market-wide price discovery and centralized trading.”
