Johannesburg, 26 June 2019: The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), Africa's largest, multi-asset class stock exchange, now offers historical equity; equity derivatives and currency derivatives tick data in the cloud, meaning that clients, data vendors, investors and traders will now be able to access historical data more swiftly.
The JSE has partnered with CME Group, the world's leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace, to house its first cloud solution offering. The move modernises the JSE's market data offering and strengthens the exchanges position as a global market player. The historical tick data will enable clients, traders and investors to assess trading opportunities, strengthen their market insights and improve risk mitigation intelligence based on both the market and various individual stocks' past performance, support compliance reporting with more extensive data and conduct other valuable trading-related analyses.
"Traders, investors and our clients require tick data all the time in order to make informed decisions and we are pleased to offer them swifter access to information that can enable them to make these decisions. As the JSE we constantly aim to provide our clients with the right solutions to meet their needs," says Mark Randall, Director of Information Services at the JSE.
