Oslo-based European market data vendor Infront is adding data from the Equiduct pan-European trading platform. The vendor will incorporate market data from Equiduct’s Apex on-exchange trading service for retail orders into the Infront Professional Terminal.
The Apex service is backed by Equiduct’s pool of liquidity providers and active brokers. The service automatically calculates the best possible price (the volume-weighted best bid/offer [VBBO]) for each order at the instant at which a trade occurs.
According to Equiduct CEO Dave?Murphy, “Our capped market data fees for retail brokers distributing data to their clients enable us to provide a cost-effective one-stop-shop trading and data solution, and Infront are the perfect partner to provide access to the retail broker community.”
The Infront Professional Terminal provides information on more than 8 million instruments from 80 exchanges globally. Infront now offers both the Equiduct Market-by-Limit and VBBO feeds. Market-by-Limit is a real-time market depth feed created from Equiduct’s consolidated pan-European order book while VBBO (Volume-weighted Best Bid and Offer) is a real-time data feed that provides the best executable price for up to four order sizes (RMS, SMS, the largest retail size on Equiduct, and the largest institutional size on Equiduct).
