HOUSTON (September 2, 2015) – OTC Global Holdings (OTCGH), the leading independent commodities interdealer broker, today announced an agreement to provide a real-time volatility surface for the natural gas options market via the Bloomberg Professional service.

The volatility surface utilizes the unrivaled liquidity provided by OTCGH’s constituent firms, which is captured within the broker’s proprietary EOXLive platform, to deliver the most sophisticated and accurate view of the natural gas options market intra-day. It will allow both brokers and individual traders to better understand where the market is trading and at what price.

“OTCGH is uniquely able to provide the richest market intelligence and transparency, thanks to the data housed within EOXLive, so that brokers and traders can better make decisions about the market,” said Javier Loya, chairman and chief executive officer of OTCGH.

“By offering this exclusive set of natural gas data on the Bloomberg Professional service, energy traders will benefit from the addition of this information into their real-time workflow in order to better manage their risk exposure across the forward curve,” said Carl Daucher, Global Head of Commodities for Bloomberg.

The agreement with Bloomberg highlights OTCGH’s sophisticated market data offering and strong market share in natural gas options markets. The OTCGH Natural Gas Implied Volatility Surfaces provide an independent, OTC market volatility data in addition to the intraday Natural Gas market implied volatility surfaces generated by Bloomberg every 15 minutes to support valuation, hedging and trading strategies and risk management in the market.
