Watching our spending, our usage and how our systems work

Market and Reference Data has always been complicated, even a little wacky – at the start of 2020 that complexity and wackiness is only increasing. Those tasked with managing, administering and implementing data solutions have a very tough job. In March 2020 what types of solution and what range of services are available to help? What and who makes up the ecosystem of support in this respect? Where do the mega data vendors fit in and where in contrast do smaller more specialised third parties. Are we folk in the market data industry over egging how difficult and odd our industry is? What is new in this space and what is well trodden and well proven?

OWLs See At Night - Developments in Feed Latency Measurement

The latency of market data dissemination from Exchanges is often critical to successful algorithmic trading strategies. However, measuring this latency has always been a challenge for a number of practical reasons. Keysight will demonstrate a new One Way Latency (OWL) measurement capability which provides a true end to end measurement of feed latency and is also simple to implement.

4:00 p.m. - 4:40 p.m.

An argument has two sides - Exchange Data pricing, and the regulators.

With two iterations of MIFID the EU, via its ESMA office, has been looking for many years at the issue of how data from Exchanges operates and how it is priced. Within that context there are at least two big themes – the concept of a fair price phrased as a ‘reasonable commercial basis’ – and the idea of a ‘European Consolidated Tape’. In parallel the US SEC has also been focussing on how Exchanges price data. There are at least two sides to this argument – Exchanges hold one view and consumers a different one. This session is intended as an update to the latest state of play and a forthright airing of some very different points of view.
