Back in December, TT announced that Rakuten Securities Inc. was a participating broker in its global MultiBroker service with direct market access to forty markets across five continents.
The new partnership will connect TT to KCG’s Fixed Income Liquidity Software, enabling KCG to provide US Treasury liquidity to both X_Trader and TT platform users – this offering of liquidity is the first such opportunity granted to a non-exchange provider.

The move will target professional traders and market participants who desire a fixed point of access to multiple avenues of global fixed income liquidity. Furthermore, users will now be able to utilize a variety of trading strategies for US Treasury markets.
According to Rick Lane, CEO of TT, in a recent statement on the partnership, “Connectivity to KCG will boost our offering to fixed income traders by providing them with direct access to additional liquidity generated by KCG’s market makers. We think this will be an important differentiator for us as we continue to strengthen our tool suite for the fixed income community.”
“We’re pleased to offer Trading Technologies’ clients access to our market making liquidity. This technology makes our one-to-one, fully accountable trading relationship very scalable and enables us to deliver high quality liquidity to TT’s diverse client base without asking them to change their workflow,” added Samantha Coyne, head of fixed income client services for KCG in an accompanying statement.
