LONDON, March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Object Trading has released its latest version of FrontRunner(R) API to meet the increased demand of Direct Market Access customers. FrontRunner(R) API 2.0 is based on purpose built proprietary networking protocols and their fastest FrontRunner(R) server interface yet, operating 25 per cent faster than their existing high-speed connection methods.

Expanding the integration options for Direct Market Access customers, Object Trading's FrontRunner(R) system now supports client-system connections via their easily integrated FrontRunner(R) API across Linux, Solaris and Windows platforms, allowing rapid, customised development of connectivity on these platforms to over 50 destinations world-wide.

FrontRunner(R) also continues to natively support existing FIX based interfaces for clients trading via FIX 4.2 and FIX 5.0 and algorithmic or front-end vendors' integration layers; including popular choices such as Trading Technologies X_Trader(R) and the TT FIX Adapter* for Asian markets, integration recently completed by Object Trading and launched in January 2011.

Steve Woodyatt, Managing Director said "Now a sell or buy side institution may deploy a fully independent, pre-trade risk managed true direct market access infrastructure to over 50 destinations.
