Enables users to become electronic liquidity providers

A real-time, streaming, rate-publishing API lets banks, brokers and other financial institutions, create and publish executable rates for foreign exchange spot, forwards, swaps and other symbol-based money market instruments to their clients.

  • Rates are streamed through a spread engine based on pre-determined grouped rules.
  • Rules are based on currency pair, quantity, customer credit profile, or any combination thereof.
  • There is no limit to the number of groups that can be created.

Enhances e-trading Best Price and Spread engines

When an institution has more than one streaming executable rate feed, the Pricing Engine can process the full depth of the market to constantly and consistently find the best bid and offer, subject to powerful rate-staleness and validity filters.

  • Rates are streamed through a spread engine based on a pre-determined set of rules.
  • The rules enable set-up of different spreads to different customers, based on currency pair, quantity, customer credit profile, or any combination thereof.

Distributes prices via FIX API, Whte Label and ECNs

The FX pricing Engine distributes proprietary rates to customers via FIX API, White Label and ECN channels, each of which can be managed and monitored separately.

  • Downstream to your customers via our DealingPad Customer Edition
  • FXall, 360T, Bloomberg, Currenex and other ECNs
  • Integrate via API to 3rd Party White Label products

Posts trades to the middle- or back-office e-treasury system

The FX Pricing Engine allows financial institutions to execute deals and export them to their back-office systems.

Back-to-back trading

The simplest strategy for hedging customer risk is to back-to-back each customer trade with a corresponding trade to market. This strategy might be used when an institution is acting as an agent only, in certain currency pairs or trade amounts. The Strategy Engine decides whether to back-to-back or warehouse risk instantaneously.

  • Supports A-Book / B-Book trading .
  • Enables risk taking by common currency amount with auto-hedge.

Position management

Sophisticated algorithms allow risk to accumulate within certain tolerances to enable internal crossing between customer and internal trades. The Strategy Engine's user interface provides a summary view of all current positions.

  • Within the Strategy Engine, information is updated in real time, changing tick by tick, as the market develops. All available currencies and currency pairs are listed with associated Marked-To-Market statistics.
  • All available currencies and currency pairs are listed with associated marked-to-market statistics.

Algorithmic trading
