QuantHouse has announced that the FastMatch consolidated central market data
product, the FX Tape, is now available on its API Ecosystem store.
QuantHouse is an independent provider of systematic trading solutions, including market data services, an algo trading platform and infrastructure solutions. QuantHouse says that more than 300 buy side firms and investment banks are connected to its API Ecosystem, which enables access solutions provided by buy and sell side firms, execution venues and technology partners. As QuantHouse manages the API, customers can access services quickly and efficiently, simply by ‘plugging-in’.
FastMatch’s FX Tape includes transactions from a range of market participants and sources, including FastMatch’s ECN, delivering a reference point for executed trades in the spot FX market.
Pierre Feligioni, CEO and co-founder at QuantHouse, says: “Whether you sit on the buy side or sell side, anyone who trades FX will benefit from being able to access the FastMatch FX Tape. We commend FastMatch for looking to create the first consolidated tape for the FX market and are delighted to be able to help expand their reach through our API global community of users.”
Kevin Wolf, CEO, FastMatch, comments: “FastMatch’s FX Tape makes post-trade information for the spot market accessible to everyone as we deliver transaction information from a broad range of sources. FastMatch experienced heightened interest in the FX Tape recently from several central banks following the January 2019 USD/JPY flash crash, which validates the value of an independent reference point in the market. We anticipate that QuantHouse will act as a complementary channel for those wishing to access the FX Tape, in addition to our suite of spot FX market data products.”
