Overview

In an environment where cost savings through rationalisation of legacy market data solutions are still necessary, MDX Technology provides high performance cost effective solutions for Traders, Developers and Market Data Professionals in the Financial Services, Energy and Commodities sectors.

With diverse clients across the globe, MDXT gives traders highly efficient access to liquidity (via a high performance Excel add-in and common API) from the widest range of sources to help them make better investment decisions.

We offer developers a common interface to multiple market data platforms (Bloomberg, Exegy, NYSET, Solace, SunGard, Thomson Reuters, TIBCO, etc. supported with a roadmap of others to follow) to help them develop applications more rapidly and cost effectively.

We provide Market Data Professionals with “out of the box” tools to help them rationalise, replace and ultimately save costs on legacy applications (up to 75% cost saving on premium desktop terminals).

We also allow everyone to share their data more efficiently!​
