R5FX, Shanghai Clearing House to Launch FX Trading Platform
R5FX and the Shanghai Clearing House (SHCH) will launch a new electronic marketplace next month, in a move which will enable Chinese banks to directly trade offshore RMB with London for the first time.  The platform, called Connect, is due to go-live on 18 December – following confirmation from the People’s Bank of China. Eight Chinese banks will be participating from launch, with further banks and institutions to be added at a later date. The products available for trading in this first phase will be USD/HKD, GBP/USD and EUR/USD. Profit & Loss understands that CNH and the remaining G10 currency pairs may also be added towards the end of Q1 2018.
