Launch of FIX-protocol for market information distribution

From October 1st the Ukrainian Exchange starts to provide market information through FIX-protocol version 4.2.

FIX (Financial Information eXchange) protocol is developing by a non-profit organization FIX Protocol Ltd since 1998, and for a long time has been recognized as a standard for trading of financial instruments because it allows to reduce significantly the cost on building an information exchange between exchanges, brokers, institutional investors and other financial market participants.

“Leading global exchanges necessarily provide an access to their information and trading services through the FIX protocol. We are glad that our Exchange has become the first trading platform in Ukraine that has implemented this standard. At the beginning stage we provide information, but we also test the possibility to accept the applications”, – commented Oleg Tkachenko, Chairman of the Board of the Ukrainian Exchange.

“For us, as for developer of trading and information platforms, the advantage of using international standards is in the fact that they allow our software “to speak one language” with IT systems both clients and providers of information” – commented Richard Ogdon, director of TRDATA company, “FIX protocol for the market of financial information is like English for business communication. Now we can communicate “without translators” with the stock exchange in Ukraine”.
