Arcontech/KTS Completes Integration with Equiduct feeds

KTS is pleased to announce that it's wholly owned subsidiary Arcontech, a real-time software specialist providing products and bespoke systems for collection, processing, distribution and presentation of time-sensitive financial markets data, has completed the introduction of new feed handlers to integrate Equiduct's data into its CityVision product suite. This gives customers' access to the real-time VBBO (Volume-weighted Best Bid/Offer), hybrid order book and trade feeds from the new pan-European stock exchange via off-the-shelf CityVision products, such as Excelerator for real-time data in Microsoft Excel and the CityVision Calculation Engine, which offers high speed data processing to support price comparisons and algorithm trading decisions.

The new development will also provide access to the Equiduct feed via powerful CityVision DNA (dot net api) module, which allows developers using Microsoft's .net languages rapidly to create high performance applications very simply. It will also enable CityVision to publish Equiduct data directly onto the Reuters RMDS platform instead of via vendors, thus considerably reducing the latency for delivery.

Andrew Miller, managing director of Arcontechcommented: 

'This is another example of the benefits of our independent market data platform components approach. Deploying our FIX engine interface and feed server API greatly reduces development time for basic feed handling and, once that is done correctly, the data is immediately available to the rest of our components. We are now ready, well ahead of the Equiduct live date, to work with firms wishing to take advantage of integration with the new exchange.'
