This year LuxSE will be replacing its UTP trading platform with a new and enhanced multi-market trading platform called Optiq. The change follows Euronext’s decision to migrate from UTP to Optiq and will provide customers with maximum flexibility, simplified and harmonised messaging, as well as high performance and stability. The platform’s new architecture will also allow for faster recovery times when issues arise and provide users with a more flexible modular service structure. Further information about Optiq can be found on the Euronext website.
The new platform will be rolled out across Market Data and Cash Markets in a phased implementation. The production launch will begin in May 2017 and the production go-live of Optiq for Cash Markets matching engine and order entry gateways will be October 2017.
