In June of this year, TraderTools launched its Unique Liquidity Network (ULNtm) to address changes in the FX marketplace that have produced a liquidity gap and tightening of credit. The ULN leverages TraderTools’ core technology infrastructure to provide a single liquidity pool in emerging and underserviced local market currencies from both non-bank and regional bank market makers – with fully disclosed, relationship based prices. Market makers on TraderTools ULN have a strong presence in emerging and local market currencies such as the Turkish Lira, the South African Rand, the Scandinavian Kroner, Central European currencies, and the Russian Ruble. In 2017 new markets will be added to ULN.
“The TraderTools team has made tremendous progress with its ULN in a short period. Foreign exchange is rapidly changing and it is an exciting time to continue to add new value for our clients and grow our business.” said Andrew Levine. Mr. Heidingsfeld added further: “I look forward to working closely with Andy. His background and experience opens new opportunities for TraderTools, and his addition to tfahe management team allows me to focus my full time on expanding participation in our ULN, and designing and implementing solutions that work for our customers.”
