The move will help the trader incorporate more advanced derivatives trading strategies. BSE also offers free co-location for members who can benefit from low latency feeds. Trading members registered can avail this facility to use it to connect and ultimately trade on a single platform, at a scale and speed not previously achieved.

Trading members also benefit from Interoperability of clearing corporations of stock Exchanges, which ensures seamless clearing operations and reduces costs by improving operational efficiencies. An investor could trade on the BSE platform and get the trade cleared at a different venue where your collateral is kept. This will result in efficient use of capital for trading members who take positions on multiple stock exchanges. Some of these positions may be offsetting in nature and would hence result in a much lower outgo on margins and collateral. In essence with interoperability, investors can park all their collateral with one clearing house, and at the same time benefit from the better prices other trading venues may have to offer.

BSE thanks the consistent support and active participation of all its members and looks forward to increased volumes in the future.
