Stellar Trading Systems has linked with Nasdaq, introducing its connectivity solutions to Nasdaq Futures, Inc. (NFX), which will follow the launch of the NFX platform in H2 2015, according to a Nasdaq statement.
Stellar Trading Systems is a provider of high frequency trading systems across futures, options, equities and treasuries. The group’s trading platform has been integrated into the upcoming NFX, Nasdaq’s US-based designated contract market (DCM). NFX offers futures and options on a number of energy benchmarks, including oil, natural gas and US power.
Stellar boasts a robust global offering, having integrated a wide range of its product suite, including Stellar spreadMachine, Quantum Server, Market Maker and Aggregator. Its latest initiative will see an exposure into US energy markets via the NFX.
