Improved Speeds & New Order Types
We are pleased to announce that we made a number of key changes that will improve execution speed on Japan equities!
We have been working with our broker to improve the quality of our connectivity to the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
As a result, on Thursday, October 10, 2019, we will introduce changes that will eliminate delays on order entry and cancellation, thereby achieving the fast speeds that we have on other exchanges.
In addition, we anticipate that this change will improve the overall stability of the connection and reduce the possibility of disconnections from the market.
At the same time, we are glad to introduce the following order functionalities:
- TSE Funari order: a Limit order where any unexecuted portion becomes an MOC on the TSE
- SBI and CHI-X IOC and FOK orders
- … with more to be implemented soon!
Note: unfortunately, we will temporarily lose access to the Japanese dark pools. Please be assured that we are working around the clock to bring them back as quickly as possible.
