MTS supports growth in the use of automated trading strategies in the European fixed income markets with MTS Live, our ultra low-latency market data offering.

Ultra low-latency market data is now firmly established as a critical component of today’s fixed income market, enabling participants to feed trading strategies and meet best practice requirements. This is particularly important for participants deploying algorithmic trading systems, as the provision of high quality, consistent low-latency data is critical to feed their trading strategy of choice.

MTS Live was built to provide traders with ultra low latency, tick-by-tick data. It enables participants to tackle unprecedented levels of price volatility, mitigate latency risk and trade on a regulated platform, MTS Cash.

Now available in 16 markets, MTS Live provides market participants with a comprehensive source of pre- and post-trade market data, sourced from the MTS Cash electronic platform for European government bonds.

MTS Live users can access over 30,000,000 quotes and orders generated by the MTS trading community each day on bonds, bills and linkers from a total of 16 domestic markets. 

Data is delivered via FIX-FAST protocol to minimise latency. MTS Live can also be used in conjunction with co-location in the same data centre as the MTS matching engine to provide continuous insight into price movements.

MTS Live is restricted to market participants.
