CQG and the Small Exchange partner to improve accessibility to the futures markets

The Small Exchange, a budding futures exchange awaiting regulatory approval, today revealed an alliance with CQG, a firm that provides trading solutions, technical analysis software, market data, account and risk management systems for market participants. The partnership will give Direct Market Access to participants on the Small Exchange via CQG’s platform.

This is the second major partnership announced by CQG this year following its February alliance with JB Prime.

The Small Exchange was developed with the main goal of bridging the existing product gap in the futures market by being a client-focused futures exchange open to all types of investors. The Small Exchange plans to offer five contracts that settle in cash, which will track interest rates, equities, energy, metals and foreign exchange. The collaboration will bring CQG’s front-end trading capacity, which will provider greater accessibility to Small Exchange users from across the globe.

We wanted a partnership with a ‘second to none’ trading platform with exemplary tools that would increase our reach almost immediately, and we found it with CQG. We are well on our way to fulfilling our mission by leveraging CQG’s solutions.
