A real-time interface has been launched by FNX which will allow Japanese financial institutions to import futures and options trades from Tokyo Commodities Exchange (TOCOM) using SierraLink’s open API platform. Exchange-traded futures and options instruments that are executed with the TOCOM exchange are now automatically imported into Sierra, updating positions in real-time via Sierra’s Commodities blotter, as well as updating all the other portfolio management and reporting tools that are components of the Sierra Commodities solution, said FNX. The SierraLink interface comes with an array of security and monitoring tools, which allow users to identify and correct erroneous transactions, and duplicated or missing data, said FNX.
