TMX Atrium enhances London to Moscow latency

First Published 15th January 2013

TMX Atrium said its London-Moscow latency would be down to less than 40 ms via a Stockholm path.

London - A day after announcing a Moscow-Frankfurt route, TMX Atrium said it was improving its London-Moscow latency via a Stockholm connectivity path.

The new link provides access from London (INX) to Moscow (M1) at less than 40 milliseconds, the company said, adding that clients will now have arbitrage opportunities in the cash equity, derivatives and FX space among key liquidity points across London, Amsterdam, Stockholm and Russian markets.

"This latest refinement is part of our on-going commitment to enabling multi-asset and multi-region trading for our growing customer base," TMX Atrium Managing Direct Emmanuel Carjat said.

"Clients on the London/Amsterdam/Stockholm/Moscow path now benefit from new low latency connectivity. Offering a new latency of less than 40ms positions TMX Atrium as one of the fastest connectivity providers into and out of the Moscow markets."

Carjat said the company would continue to focus on Russia. "Through further investment and development, we will continue to increase our Moscow customer base to offer ultra-low latency, high-performance, fully diverse trading paths into and out of key financial centres such as Moscow M1."
