LSE trading interface

LSE trading interface enables connecting QUIK platform to the trading at London Stock Exchange (LSE) by means of FIX and Native protocols (for routing transactions) and GTP and MITCH protocols (for getting market data).

Using the Native protocol brokers may connect their own clients to exchange trading through sponsored access.

For connecting the interface to LSE trading platform a broker must pass a ‘live connectivity test’.
