The global user base of Trading Technologies International (TT), a provider of high-performance professional trading software, infrastructure and data solutions, can now access derivatives products listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE), through the TT platform.
The addition of WSE to Trading Technologies’ range of connected markets further strengthens the TT offering with seamless access to Central and Eastern Europe’s leading derivatives market.
The exchange’s listings span index futures, single-stock futures, currency futures and index options and include: WIG20 index futures and options; mWIG40 index futures; and USD/PLN, EUR/PLN, GBP/PLN and CHF/PLN FX futures.
In 2020, WSE ranked among European leaders in terms of turnover growth. Its main market equities grew by 47.5 per cent year over year (YoY), while its SME Growth Market saw significant action and recorded over 888 per cent YoY growth. At the same time, WSE’s derivatives segment turnover volumes grew by at least 50 per cent YoY in each product line. The WIG20 futures contract, WSE’s flagship derivatives product, is certified by the CFTC, making it available to US-based traders.
“The Warsaw Stock Exchange’s product portfolio has broad appeal to our global FCM partners and their customers as well as some buy-side and commercial users. We are happy to be collaborating with WSE on this mutually beneficial endeavour,” says Steve Stewart, Managing Director, Sales EMEA at Trading Technologies.
“We are glad TT clients will have access to WSE-listed derivatives which strongly supports further development of this market. Apart from introduction of new products, we are focused on broadening the number of market participants active in this segment. Close cooperation with TT will help us bring liquidity to WSE derivatives and make our market more attractive to investors,” says Izabela Olszewska, Member of the Warsaw Stock Exchange Management Board.
