Direct Market Access[edit]

TFEX allows brokers to offer direct market access (DMA) to clients, allowing them to connect their trading applications with a broker’s front-end system, thus enabling a client’s order to be automatically routed through the broker and into the exchange without being handled manually. For further information on DMA, please contact TFEX or a member[2].
