We are constantly looking to supply new and improved data to our customers which is why we are happy to announce that Barchart is now offering real-time access to Cboe Europe Equities and European Indexes markets further expanding our reach to our customers around the world.
Cboe Global Markets (“Cboe”) is one of the world’s largest exchange operators and has a history of providing innovative solutions and services to investors across the world. Cboe is unique among global exchange operators in their ability to develop new product (first listed options contract, VIX options, VIX futures) and execute meaningful acquisitions that leverage their strong technology and trading infrastructure.
Acquired via the 2017 purchase of Bats Global Markets, Cboe Europe represents the combination of their BXE and CXE order books - formerly Bats Europe and Chi-X Europe - which are two of the largest order books for Pan-European equities. Market share data for September 2019 month-to-date, courtesy of Cboe Global Markets is shown below. With a share of 13.91%, the CXE book trails only LSE Group’s London venue in market share by notional traded.
Removing auction volume, which is concentrated at the listing venue, Cboe Europe is the clear leader in market share and the CXE Book exhibits an impressive 18.21% market share for September 2019 MTD.
This means that access to real-time data through Cboe Europe is more important than access to data from any other venue as more trades happen intraday at their venues than anywhere else. Not to worry though if you need access to other exchanges, as Barchart has you covered with data from all 15 major European markets.
