  • New tool on the BondTiQ platform allows users to map US corporate bond liquidity
  • Powered by MTS BondsPro’s deep, real-time pricing information

London – MTS Markets International, part of London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG), and BondCliQ, a corporate bond market data solution, have launched Liquidity Mapping for BondCliQ’s BondTiQ platform.

The tool allows users to view pre- and post-trade information on US corporate bond liquidity. It combines MTS BondsPro’s comprehensive real-time pricing information with BondTiQ’s data visualisation technology and TRACE data.

BondCliQ offers US institutional investors access to high quality pre-trade and post-trade data for the institutional market. The new tool provides a multi-dimensional interface that supports execution requirements by allowing users to identify sources of liquidity effectively and quickly assess fair value according to the quoted MTS BondsPro market.

MTS BondsPro’s rich market data is sourced from a community of more than 500 broker dealers and buy-side clients participating in its anonymous all-to-all order book. The platform connects markets across the US, Europe and Asia with a 22-hour trading day, providing traders access to over 20,000 bonds with live prices daily.
