CQG Connects to Warsaw Stock Exchange for Futures Trading

  • CQG, a global provider of high-performance trade routing, reliable market data, and advanced technical analysis tools, announced today that it will launch connectivity to the Warsaw Stock Exchange (GPW) for futures trading.
  • Through the new connection, CQG customers will have access to the WIG20 contract as well as equity, FX, WIBOR, and T-bond futures contracts.

CQG will provide direct market access to GPW through all of its platforms, including its flagship, CQG Integrated Client, which offers global market data and innovative interfaces for electronic trading and order management. The new connection will enable CQG customers to build effective correlation dashboards to compare GPW contracts with other exchanges and access additional trading strategies not previously available.

“The Warsaw Stock Exchange, Central and Eastern Europe’s largest trading venue, will become a significant destination for CQG customers who want to capitalize on diverse global markets,” Pat Kenny, Senior Vice President of Client Relations, said. “We are excited to extend our relationship with the exchange in order to offer our customers more trading opportunities in the European markets.”

CQG will be one of the only destinations for US and EMEA traders to access GPW futures contracts, making the offering particularly valuable. CQG customers can currently access GPW market data, and order routing will be live in Q2 of this year.

“CQG offers Warsaw Stock Exchange market participants a unique set of tools to identify new strategies and execute trading in one of our most exciting product segments,” said Małgorzata Zaleska, CEO of the Warsaw Stock Exchange. “CQG is a premier market data and trading specialist, and we are pleased that they will carry GPW market data alongside their already wide array of markets. Bringing CQG on board means that our flagship WIG20 futures contract, alongside our currency futures, single stock futures, STIRs etc. will go from strength to strength.”
