Javelin OTC Derivatives announces New Connectivity Gateway Provided by ION Trading

NEW YORK - Javelin Capital Markets, an OTC derivatives execution platform, today announced that ION Trading, a premium provider of cross-asset class electronic trading, pricing and risk management systems, will provide connectivity to the Javelin trading system.

“We are excited to offer connectivity to Javelin through the ION gateway,” said Chris Augustin, Chief Information Officer of Javelin.  “In the past three months, there has been a significant increase in strategic activity across OTC derivatives players, as they get ready for new opportunities in a post Dodd Frank world.  The ION gateway eases the integration effort for many of our market participants.”

Through the new low latency gateway developed by ION, joint customers will now be able to seamlessly connect to Javelin’s Interest Rate Swap trading facility for trade execution, real-time price streaming, order management, market data, and post-trade-feeds.

The gateway software is currently being integrated by several Interest Rate Swap dealers globally.

The ION gateway provides dealers with a full suite of trading functionality offered by Javelin, but accessible via a customer’s own proprietary application, or through the ION user interface.
