CQG Provides Market Data From Johannesburg Stock Exchange

Represents CQG's continued focus on connecting traders to emerging markets.

CQG, Inc. is making market data from the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE, Ltd.), Africa's leading securities exchange, available to CQG customers, both companies announced today.

JSE is the most recent addition to CQG's widespread list of market data sources and the first exchange connection in Africa. After recently having expanded its offering to include the Turkish Derivatives Exchange, the Mexican Derivatives Exchange, and the Multi Commodity Exchange of India, the addition of JSE represents CQG's continued focus on connecting traders to emerging markets and exchanges worldwide.

"JSE is the largest exchange in Africa and one of the top twenty derivatives exchanges in the world, so it is an important addition to CQG's extensive global coverage," commented Brian Vancil, VP of Exchange Relations at CQG, in the release.

Real-time and historical JSE market data, including futures and options on the FTSE/JSE Top 40 Index, SAFEX commodities, and Rand cross-rates, as well as JSE equities prices, are available via CQG Integrated Client, the company's flagship platform for electronic trading, global market data and advanced analytics, and CQGMobile, CQG's tool for on-the-move market data access via BlackBerry devices. CQG's consolidated market data feed is delivered via Internet, private line, or through custom engineered solutions.

"CQG, Inc.'s market data feed consolidates over a hundred sources, including exchanges worldwide, to provide the industry with global market data and analysis. The JSE is delighted to be associated with the group, and through this association, to be reaching a wider audience with the exchange's market data," says Ana Forssman, senior general Manager of JSE's Information Products Sales.

JSE now offers products in multiple asset classes, spanning derivatives, futures, fixed income and cash instruments, and equities markets. Recent Futures Industry Association volume statistics rank JSE as the sixteenth largest derivatives exchange worldwide.
