Xetra, Deutsche Börse’s reference market for exchange trading in German shares and exchange-traded-funds (ETFs), has launched an expanded data feed that helps augment its order book depth and scope.
The group’s data feed already encompasses a broadly visible order book – the development of an enhanced Xetra data feed however allows for improved trading capabilities via the deployment of more granular data, catering to both buy and sell-side clients.
Following the upgrade, CEF ultra+Xetra Order by Order will include a composite of tools and functionality, such as un-netted order by order public market data, full order book depth for all instruments, information on the sell- and buy-side, and other product insights.
In addition, the enhancement will see the migration of Xetra to T7 trading technology as early as H2 2017, which has been instrumental in making the new offering possible.
According to Hartmut Graf, Head of Data Services at Deutsche Börse, in a statement on the launch: “We developed CEF ultra+ Xetra Order by Order for our Algo Trading Community whose strategies and computer-aided processes are based on speed and the completeness of information.”
“The granular data is particularly beneficial for buy- and sell-side customers, whose algorithms monitor trading processes. By processing highly detailed information on individual orders, these algorithms support trading decisions,” he added.
