MTS, a European fixed income trading venue, has extended coverage of MTS Live, its low-latency market data offering, to include government bond data from additional central European countries and Israel.
MTS Live provides users with the tools they need to evolve their trading strategies.
The move is part of an initiative to further enhance its pre-and post-trade market data offering in the European government bond market for fixed income market participants globally and follows the launch of MTS Live in Europe last year.

MTS Live customers are now able to access low-latency market data on securities from a total of 16 government issuers, enabling them to increase matching opportunities and mitigate latency risk.
Simon Linwood, Head of Credit Markets and Data at MTS, commented: “As fixed income market participants continue to adopt increasingly sophisticated electronic trading systems, the need to access meaningful low-latency data sourced from highly liquid bond markets has become important. By broadening the scope of data available, MTS Live provides users with the tools they need to evolve their trading strategies.”
MTS Live provides market participants with a comprehensive source of pre- and post-trade market data, sourced from MTS Cash, a comprehensive and professional interdealer trading environment for European government bonds.
Data is provided from an un-aggregated order books with every visible price, order and trade for the most liquid bonds traded on MTS Cash with users having access to over 30 million quotes and orders generated daily by the MTS trading community.
The data is then delivered via FIX-FAST protocol to minimise latency risk and can be combined with co-location in the same data centre as the MTS matching engine to provide continuous insight into price movements.
