CQG expands order execution, market data, and analytics platform, provides new range of trading features for fixed income traders

Josef Schroeter, President, CQG: "Our strategy is to continue to strengthen our fixed income offering to meet the complete needs of traders."

CQG, Inc. has expanded its order execution, market data, and analytics platform to provide enhanced functionality for fixed income traders, the company announced at TradeTech Europe in London.

CQG has introduced a range of new trading features for order routing among fixed income traders and will be demonstrating these new features during TradeTech (April 20-22) at booth 63 on the exhibit floor.

"Fixed income traders see the value in a cohesive interface that brings together the best in trade routing, market data, and advanced technical analysis," said Josef Schroeter, President of CQG. "Our strategy is to continue to strengthen our fixed income offering to meet the complete needs of traders."

New features offered for fixed income traders include:

* Spread across Multiple Accounts: CQG Spreader, developed exclusively for spread traders needing sophisticated order management and ultra-low latency execution, now allows traders to spread between multiple brokerage accounts. For example, a trader can spread U.S. Treasuries against U.S. Treasury futures even when they have different brokerage accounts for these instruments.
* Hosted Direct Market Access to All Major Treasury Exchanges: CQG provides hosted trade routing to the four major exchanges for US Treasury instruments: BrokerTec, BGC, CBOT, and ELX Futures. No other hosted solution provides such access.
* Aggregation: CQG has added server-side aggregation to its Hosted Exchange Gateways. This enables traders to automatically trade similar instruments on two or more exchanges with CQG's server-side order routing gateways managing where the trades get filled based on the trader's preferences.
* Yield Pricing: Traders can now trade fixed income securities, including futures on these instruments, based on yield.

CQG has also enhanced its analytics offering and, with its Instrument and Portfolio Monitors aims to enable traders to monitor hundreds of symbols across multiple studies in a single, spreadsheet view.

Traders also have access to a range of fixed income data sources available through CQG, including ICAP/BrokerTec, BGCantor Market Data, ELX Futures, Tullett Prebon, and other sources.
