Commenting on the news, Andy Lowenthal, Senior Vice President of Business Development at CBOE, said: ““Our new LiquidityBook technology will not only facilitate faster workflow from start to finish for users, it will add significant value in several aspects.  For example, traders can now utilize PULSe-to-PULSe routing to electronically access CBOE’s brokerage community from third-party and proprietary systems. This increases workflow efficiency, enhances compliance reporting and improves execution quality by bridging the gap between electronic systems and the excellent open-outcry liquidity at CBOE.”

LiquidityBook is fully compatible with other technology platforms.  Firms not currently connected to PULSe can now use LiquidityBook to link to CBOE.”
