3. Connectivity

MTS BondsPro offers a wide range of direct connectivity options – all with straight through processing – to suit the diverse technology and budget requirements of participants.

A popular option is our web-based HTML 5 solution, which is designed to bypass the need for installation of software, dramatically reducing deployment times. API connectivity is also available via the industry standard FIX 4.4 protocol, enabling fast and effective integration with existing systems.

Most recently we have partnered with Bloomberg to enable buy-side traders using Bloomberg TSOX to trade USD and non-USD corporate bonds in the MTS BondsPro liquidity pool directly from their Bloomberg terminal. This is the first direct access trading connection by an unaffiliated electronic platform with Bloomberg TSOX, delivering access to a new global liquidity pool without any additional desktop real-estate requirements or integration costs.

Connectivity options include:

  • FIX 4.4 API

  • Bloomberg AIM, Charles River, Latent Zero and other OMSs
  • Bloomberg TSOX
  • TOMS/eTOMS Connectivity
  • Hybrid voice-electronic trading via facilitation desk
