NEW YORK, July 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc.

(Nasdaq:NDAQ) and trueEX Group LLC, a Commodity Futures Trading Commission

(CFTC)-regulated exchange for interest rate swaps, have announced a five-year

partnership during which NASDAQ OMX will provide the SMARTS Integrity market

surveillance platform to trueEX. The solution is now live and monitors both

trueEX's Designated Contract Market (DCM) and its Swap Execution Facility (SEF).

"We're pleased to partner with a market-leader such as trueEX, as we look to

assist exchanges to become safer and more transparent for market players across

the globe. Our platform is a natural choice for trading platforms and regulators

looking to safely optimize trading activity," said Rob Lang, Vice President and

Global Head of SMARTS, NASDAQ OMX.

The SMARTS Integrity technology provides trueEX with analytical capabilities

that will monitor trading for potential market manipulations as well as provide

analytical capabilities and reporting through the SMARTS new SQL interface. As

implementation of Dodd-Frank places obligations on SEFs to have a surveillance

program in place, SMARTS Integrity will enable trueEX to bring the program in-

house and realize cost savings against a fully-outsourced approach.

"We are excited to deploy the NASDAQ SMARTS product at trueEX, as it will

revolutionize the way we conduct surveillance, reporting and data analysis,"

said Karen O'Connor, Chief Operating Officer, trueEX. "This announcement builds

on an existing, strong relationship with NASDAQ and is a great complement to an

already strong service offering."

trueEX offers market participants the dual benefit of automated execution and

clearing in an electronic, CFTC-regulated, DCM exchange in addition to their SEF

platform. To date, trueEX has processed more than $1.5 trillion notional in

allocations, terminations, offsets, and blended compressions.

SMARTS surveillance solutions operate in more than 50 trading venues and

regulators, and more than 90 market participants across 65 markets. SMARTS

Integrity will serve as a vital market supervision and control tool.
