Haitong Futures, a subsidiary of China's Haitong Securities, has deployed Flextrade's futures trading platform FlexFutures, to connect to the Shanghai Futures Information Technology's Comprehensive Transaction Platform, the companies announced on May 27.

The connectivity enables clients of Haitong to trade over the Shanghai Futures Exchange (SHFE), Dalian Commodity Exchange (DCE), Zhengzhou Commodity Exchange (ZCE) and China Financial Future Exchange (CFFEX).

"We often hear clients asking for a good English trading system, so one of our goals was to provide a one-stop English platform for QFIIs [Qualified Foreign Institutional Investors], hedge funds and other international investors for trading in China's futures markets. After a detailed study, we chose FlexFutures to satisfy our clients' demand for manual click trading and algorithmic trading," says Lili Wang, manager at Haitong Futures international department in Shanghai.

Flextrade says FlexFutures integrates with order management systems and other proprietary or third-party systems, as well as having many rules-based trading strategies, including Pairs, Calendar Spreads and Iceberg, as well as synthetic and contingent order types.

"As derivatives markets become more automated in China, it is critical for firms such as Haitong Futures to use trading technology platforms such as FlexFutures to help their international clients trade futures in China's derivatives markets, while reducing market impact and minimising slippage," says Manish Kedia, managing director of FlexTrade Systems in Singapore.
