Trading Technologies Extends Execution and Connectivity to Brazil

By Uri Inspector, Staff Reporter

Trading Technologies (TT) has extended its execution and client connectivity offerings to Brazil through the Bovespa B3 Data Centre. This gives regional clients access to TT’s worldwide network of data centres as well as collocated connectivity to B3 for global execution of latency-sensitive trades. Brazil-based traders also have access to TT’s Autospreader and ADL algorithmic and automated trading tools.

Services on offer at B3 include TT Reserved, which enables traders to run automated trading strategies on dedicated servers within the data centre, and TT Prime, which leverages the TT Reserved infrastructure for maximised spread trading performance on a custom built Autospreader.

Guy Scott, managing director of sales in the Americas for TT, says: “By collocating with B3, we’re opening up countless opportunities for our Brazilian traders as well as our global customers. TT users worldwide can leverage our ultra-low latency connectivity and colo to trade the interest rate curve or execute multi-leg spreads using TT’s innovative spread trading tools for maximum performance.”

Orders entered on the TT trading platform are routed through the company’s collocated infrastructure for double-digit microsecond order execution, which it says eliminates the need for expensive, private, performance focused networks.

The extension of the TT platform into Brazil provides one of the lowest-latency commercially available futures execution platforms in the country. While some local Brazilian vendors provide various levels of automation at B3, TT believe it is the only low-latency vendor in Brazil offering global market coverage along with access to every local and global broker on one platform.

TT’s next move is further expansion in Asia Pacific markets where it already operates colocation services at data centres in Sydney, Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
