LSE trading interface

The LSE trading interface* connects the QUIK platform to trading on London Stock Exchange (LSE) by means of FIX and Native protocols (for sending transactions) and GTP and MITCH protocols (for getting market data).

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

To connect the interface to LSE trading platform, a broker must pass a ‘live connectivity test’.

* MiFID II compliant
