Exegy Incorporated, the ultra-high performance market data appliance company, said today that the Exegy Ticker Plant has added built-in market data feed handlers to process data from Canadian alternative trading system Omega ATS.

Exegy clients will now have the ability to access the alternative trading system’s trading data using Exegy’s hardware-accelerated market data appliance.

“Our high frequency trading customers noted that competitive markets and low cost execution has come to Canada, the world’s fourth largest trading market.  And that is why we have tuned our product for Canadian data,” said Jeff Wells, vice president of product management at Exegy.

Greg King, COO at Omega ATS, said his firm’s approach has been “to work with the traders to provide great prices, competition and as much choice as possible, and today’s announcement is an example of that strategy in action.”

“The ability to obtain fast direct feed data from Omega ATS will continue to be important to market participants as we continue to attract more and more high frequency traders to the Canadian market,” King noted.

Omega ATS is an alternative trading system for Canadian exchange-listed equities.

Omega provides the Canadian marketplace with a price/time priority trading platform where dealers and their clients can trade at the CBBO (Canadian Best Bid and
Offer).
