European exchange Euronext launches new digital trading platform Optiq

Pan-European exchange Euronext has launched its new digital trading platform Optiq.

The new service is live on cash markets, including equities, structured products, ETFs and fixed income. Optiq provides investors access to trading across all asset classes available on Euronext’s exchanges.

This technology offers higher performance in terms of latency and time to market, having already handled 14 billion messages and 18.8 million trades in the 15 days it has been live. It also has an improved surveillance and monitoring service to provide users with a resilient platform.

Following this implementation, the company will look to deploy Optiq to migrate Euronext derivatives markets to the new platform, which will happen next year.

Euronext is an online trading platform which provides investors with access to various types of opportunities. Trading products available include equities, fixed income, funds, ETFs, warrants and certificates, commodities and indices, among others.

Euronext CEO and chairman Stéphane Boujnah said, “The delivery of Optiq for our cash equity products is a turning point for Euronext. Proprietary technology is the propelling power of stock exchanges, and our new platform will enhance our agility and independence, strengthen the value proposition of our federal model, and foster innovation, for the full benefit of our clients.”

The technology will be made available to other exchanges and venue operators, with Luxenbourg Stock Exchange already utilising the solution.

Earlier in the year, retail traders and investors social network TradingView closed a $37m Series B round. The company combines web-based charting, analytics and a trading platform with social network features to help connect traders and investors.
