In Barchart’s case,  the cmdty product’s focus is on…

The sold-out FinTech Exchange conference, hosted by Barchart, was largely about data – what to do with data, how exchanges are capturing new data and how to trade it. That, on its surface, isn’t particularly new. But the infrastructure to capture all kinds of data is now developed.

FinTech Exchange Chicago: Future Is Now For Some FinTech and Right Around The Corner For Other Technology Commentary,Tech / HFT

FinTech Exchange 2016 Chicago was no wistful exercise in futurology last month. It was firmly set in the do-or-die present of technological solutions and opportunities.
