EuroLight® is the trading platform used for all APX spot markets, except the Power NL Intraday market segment that is coupled over NorNed to the Nordic region. The system has proven to be robust and flexible, and is used for trading, settlement and notification.

Datacapture API

The DataCapture system is an environment that provides members the ability to quickly and easily capture a range of information. The data available for capture is:

  • Orders in the market
  • Members own trades by contract time
  • Members own trades by delivery period
  • All trades
  • Chargelines

The DataCapture process

Order and Trade information can be captured from the APX web server. Access is available via the Internet. This environment is connected to the central database used by the trading application, thus delivering real-time information. To retrieve the data a request has to be made to a component situated at an APX web server. This request can be made by a custom-made member application or by using a standard web browser.

Back office website

In the Back Office website you can view your invoices and query the APX spot trading database for your historical order, contract, invoice and settlement information. The Back Office website is intended for analysts, back office employees and financial officers. The Back Office website supports the main EuroLight® trading system. To improve performance, data in the EuroLight® application itself is limited to three days.
