IG Markets launches new multi-venue technology

Posted:
4/1/2010

Our new multi-venue technology capitalises on the recent rapid expansion in Multilateral Trading Facilities (MTFs), which compare prices from multiple sources and find the best deal available, offering superior pricing and increased liquidity.

Tighter spreads, better value

Our new technology works behind the scenes, consolidating data from Europe's two leading MTFs, Chi-X and Turquoise, with that of traditional exchanges such as LSE and Euronext, allowing traders to benefit from even narrower spreads on shares and increased value for money.

Multi-venue technology also gives clients access to free live data on top UK and European shares, a significant advantage for those not wishing to pay for live data from the major exchanges. And our Price Improvement technology means that if a better price exists on a fee-liable venue, the better value will be reflected.

Those traders looking for direct market access can also trade directly into the order book of the world's equity exchanges. We use smart order routing technology which will automatically send your order to the venue providing the best price available at the time.

For further information on our innovative multi-venue technology, please see the Share CFDssection of our IG Markets website.

We have also introduced the technology for our spread betting site IG Index, leading to tighter spreads on up to 1450 UK and European shares.
