Bloomberg Tradebook raised over $1 million at its fifth annual Charity Day on Thursday.
The Charity Day originated in 2012, with the New York office of Bloomberg Tradebook donating the net commissions from its equities business on that day to five different charities.
It has now evolved to include London, Hong Kong and – in partnership with BM&F Bovespa – Sao Paulo and will see the net commissions across all of the asset classes that Bloomberg Tradebook services donated to 20 different charities.

This has left a clear opening for alternative liquidity providers, some of whom have been very public about their ambitions in the FX market. Some of these alternative liquidity providers have been quick to emphasise the fact that they do hold positions and take risk in the market, as opposed to just recycling liquidity or arbitraging between different areas of the market.
With less than one week to go before the industry’s premier FX conference, Forex Network Chicago, Profit & Loss has recorded a special “Chicago Edition” of its podcast “In the FICC of It”.
