FXMarketSpace: An Overview
FXMarketSpace is the first centrally-cleared OTC foreign exchange (FX) trading platform. It was formed through a 50/50 joint venture between two FX industry leaders, Reuters and CME to serve the evolving needs of the FX market, including speed, efficiency, centralized clearing and complete anonymity.
A Powerful Combination
FXMarketSpace represents the combination of a central counterparty model and clearing function of CME, with the global distribution network and straight-through processing capability of Reuters. It is supported by market-leading technology which offers elements not found in any other FX platform:
* centrally cleared OTC trading
* fully anonymous execution
* choice of access
* industry-leading matching engine
Meeting the Needs of a Changing Market
FXMarketSpace is targeted to meet the growing FX needs of banks and other financial institutions including traditional asset managers, proprietary trading firms, leveraged funds, overlay currency managers, hedge funds and CTAs. It is designed to provide increased price transparency, introduce trading anonymity, and heighten FX market accessibility. Combined, these three features hold enormous potential to deepen FX market liquidity and market efficiency for the next generation of FX trading.
FXMarketSpace offers participants unprecedented access to its platform through a variety of means including:
* CME's iLink API
* Reuters Dealing 3000 and Reuters 3000 Xtra desktops
* Reuters standard transactions API
* Select Independent Software Vendors (ISVs)
* eFX portals of participating clearing member firms
Providing Access to All Major Currencies
FXMarketSpace will initially support spot FX transactions in six major currencies against the U.S. dollar: the euro, Japanese yen, British pound, Australian dollar, Swiss franc and Canadian dollar. Four cross currency pairs will also be supported.
P.D: ¿será una platoforma sólo para inversores institucionales o para que tenga acceso cualquier inversor?
