Welcome to The Exchange Guide (XCG) the online subscription service that provides an independent browser platform for concurrent and historical information surrounding Global Exchange Vendor Agreements governing the use of Market Data (not Trading Systems).
The purpose of this site is to provide a single point of login access to a
comprehensive and user-friendly databank containing the essential rules, terms
and conditions of exchange data contracts worldwide.
We achieve our goal by
using a common, normalised exchange format for easy reference to all key areas
of exchange vendor agreements; including Derived Data creation, Non Display
Policy, Data Pricing, Audit terms, Unit(s) of Count, Cost savings/Discounts,
Netting capabilities and many more.
XCG is renowned for its interface simplicity,
accessibility and detail and prides itself on giving independent third party
analysis alongside concrete terms and rules.
The XCG subscription service is extremely useful for
anyone connected with Market Data; Managers, Administrators, Developers,
Consultants and Users.
The database also has the facility for internal,
proprietary data storage which is private and confidential to your account
only. XCG Manager allows you to freely insert, edit and store any free
text, PDF’s, Side-letters, Excel Spreadsheets, PowerPoint’s and/or embedded
media into your own customised front-end proprietary guides.
