New market study, "Evolution in the FX market", has been published

New Telecom and Computing market report from Datamonitor: "Evolution in the FX market"

 
PRLog - Apr. 26, 2010 - This report looks at technology trends in the electronic trading of FX, how more ECNs are emerging for this purpose.

Scope

* FX trading technology
* ECNs, interbank market, institutional and retail markets

Highlights

Foreign exchange is a large and expanding market that is increasingly reliant on technology. FX has become an asset class in its own right and liquidity has undergone fragmentation, giving rise in the last few years to the kind of high-frequency trading (HFT) strategies that had already evolved in the equities market over the previous decade.

Reasons to Purchase

* Gain an insight as to how FX trading is becoming part of broader, multi-asset strategies
* See where there are opportunities to sell technology to support new trading strategies
