MCX is a prominent commodity derivatives exchange that enables online trading of commodity derivatives transactions. The company is planning to switch to its new trading platform, provided by Tata Consultancy Services Limited, after many years and multiple service extensions with its current service provider likely from the beginning of next month.
According to sources, a successful mock trading session took place on the new platform last Saturday. The company is likely to shift its operations to the new trading platform by next week, pending necessary approval from the market regulator SEBI.
MCX has been using software provided by 63 Moons Technology for a long time. The initial agreement between MCX and 63 Moons was made in November 2014 and was set to expire in 2022. However, the company announced an extension in July, deciding to continue its support services from 63 Moons Technologies for an additional six months, starting from July 1, 2023, with an expiration date in December of the same year.
This transition to the new platform is a significant development as it ends the exchange’s reliance on its previous partner, 63 Moons. To ensure a smooth transition, MCX plans to keep the 63 Moons platform as a backup in case any issues or glitches arise on the new platform.
MCX faced challenges in transitioning to the new platform within the initially specified deadlines, which led to the extension of its agreement with the current service provider, 63 Moons.
