Real Time HKEX Market Data Added to TNS Global Offering

Transaction Network Services (TNS) can now provide real time market data from the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing (HKEX). This move allows TNS customers to access the market data systems of the ninth largest stock exchange, and the 14th largest derivatives exchange, in the world, the company said.

Providing HKEX data means that TNSXpress market data now covers the majority of the world´s most important markets and exchanges.

HKEX access is part of TNS´ 60 exchanges in the world´s most important financial markets, giving TNS customers coverage of HKEX equities, commodities, fixed income and currency markets.
