In the FICC of it

This is a very special In the FICC of it podcast as Colin Lambert and Galen Stops bring in some guest commentators at the Forex Network Chicago conference: they’re joined by Jim Cochrane, head of North America sales at BestX, Peter-john Byrnes, vice president, Networks and Infrastructure at Elysium Technology Group and Al Crane, director of sales at MarketFactory. The subjects of data, connectivity, liquidity are covered and one of the guest commentators makes a serious error of judgement by asking Lambert for his thoughts on last look!

SEB Algos Available on Bloomberg and FXall

SEB has announced that it is the first Scandinavian bank to offer FX algo trading to its clients through multibank portals Bloomberg and FXall.
Instead of traditional orders where clients call in for their orders to be executed, they will now be able to place their orders themselves through FX Algos, a new portal which will give them the advantage of a transparent, smooth as well as automated trading solution.
The bank says clients will completely own their order execution, and will be able to select their preferred strategy and follow the execution without the need to contact their salesperson at the bank.
