LME taps Cinnober to upgrade electronic trading platform

5/31/2010, 2:00 PM (Source: GlobeNewswire)
Cinnober has won an upgrade order for the London Metal Exchange's (LME)
electronic trading platform, the LMEselect.
Back in 2003, Cinnober delivered its first version of the LMEselect platform,
based on the Swedish supplier's TRADExpress technology. During the period of
cooperation between the LME and Cinnober, electronic trading has grown from 2%
to over 70% of the LME's market volume.
"The LME is the world's premier base metal market. In order to keep up our
momentum and stay at the forefront we have a strategic need to provide
industry-leading performance and reliability in terms of technology", says
Michael Warren, CTO of the London Metal Exchange. "Our long-term partnership
with Cinnober has been successful for years, and we're now looking to take
LMEselect to the next level."
The LMEselect is now upgraded from TRADExpress 5.8 to version 8.0, which was
released earlier this year together with impressive benchmarks and an extensive
feature package. The new version will be implemented at the LME later this year.
"The LME brings an entire new level to the commodity exchange businesses," says
Nils-Robert Persson, Executive Chairman at Cinnober. "The type of capacity,
functionality and low latency provided through this upgrade can't be found
anywhere else in this business. We're proud to work closely with such a
prominent trading venue as the LME, with hundreds of years of successful
business yet with the clarity of vision that it takes to meet the future."
