CHICAGO, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Phillip Futures Inc., a Chicago-based clearing futures commission merchant (FCM) and member of the Singapore-based PhillipCapital Group, is pleased to announce that it now offers select Asian markets on TTNET, a fully managed hosting solution from Trading Technologies International, Inc. (TT), a global provider of high-performance trading software for derivatives professionals.
Phillip Futures Inc. customers now have access to Singapore Exchange (SGX), Osaka Securities Exchange (OSE), Tokyo Commodity Exchange (TOCOM) and Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) on TTNET. The firm has plans to continue to add additional Asian markets on TTNET, including immediate plans to launch Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Berhad (BMD) in Q3 2013.

"We are excited to add to our existing global electronic trading capabilities for our clients. I love that we are able to provide the tools to access new markets to a new audience that may not have been previously available," said Bob Keeley, Senior Vice President of Sales and Business Development with Phillip Futures.
Earlier this year, Phillip Futures Inc. launched co-location access to CME Group's data center in Aurora, IL. The network provides the firms' joint customers with ultra-high-speed, low-latency access to the TT-supported markets traded through the CME Globex platform.
