UBS today announced the launch of algorithmic trading for international clients trading equities on Bolsa Mexicana de Valores in Mexico. The addition of algorithmic trading strategies enhances clients’ ability to access this major Latin American market center, and complements UBS’s existing Direct Market Access (DMA) offering in the country.
UBS is launching this offering in Mexico with a full suite of liquidity seeking, volume and price-sensitive strategies, including the award-winning UBS Tap. UBS clients can use these algorithmic trading strategies to efficiently interact with liquidity on Bolsa Mexicana, sending electronic orders directly to the exchange without passing through an intermediary.
In November 2010, UBS was the first international broker to launch DMA in Mexico, allowing clients to trade electronically directly on the exchange. UBS clients can now send both front-to-back DMA and algorithmic trading orders using most major execution management systems or order management systems, as well as the firm’s own UBS Pinpoint.
