McKay Brothers International (MBI) has reduced latency on the select London Metal Exchange (LME) data it redistributes via the wireless Quincy Extreme Data (QED) service.
The reduction reflects MBI’s adoption of the new LMEsource multicast feed and the deployment of FPGA feed handlers. The median improvement from these changes is 400 microseconds, and is expected to be considerably larger during bursts.
“We are pleased to offer this latency improvement to QED’s subscribers of LME market data,” says MBI Managing Director Francois Tyc (pictured). “The LMEsource feed, combined with QED’s industry-leading latency, results in a compelling service for traders of base metals in Europe, India and the US.”
MBI delivers select LME market data at the lowest latency to Slough-LD4, Marseille-MRS1, Frankfurt-FR2 and Milan-I.NET. QED distributes LME’s 3-month futures for Copper (CA), Aluminum High Grade (AH), Tin (SN), Zinc (ZS), Nickel (NI) and Lead (PB).
