And Another Thing…

We should not be blind-sided by the relative calm at this week’s quarter end WM Fix, the fact is FX market conditions are as bad as I can remember them in my almost 43 years in the industry – and that includes countless multi-big figure days (or hours sometimes). The difference when those conditions hit […]

In the FICC of It

It’s an all Profit & Loss affair for this week’s podcast as Colin Lambert is joined by P&L’s editor-in-chief Julie Ros to run through a long agenda in these “interesting” times. This being the podcast Lambert can’t resist a little cynicism to kick off as he “praises” some market analysts’ abilities, but Ros easily pulls […]

Acknowledging that “data” has become something of a buzzword in the FX industry […]

And Another Thing…

The agenda established by the Global Foreign Exchange Committee for the focus of the impending three-year review of the FX Global Code was not expected to surprise – and it didn’t. As I argued in Monday’s column the key factors in need of discussion and review largely surround execution – although I have to acknowledge […]

And Finally…

This week sees the Global FX Committee meet in Sydney for a meeting that is largely going to focus on the subject matter for the first three-year review of the FX Global Code. I will be very surprised if the key themes for the review are not buy side engagement, disclosures, anonymous trading and certain […]

In the FICC of It

There is a long run list for this week’s In the FICC of It podcast, which kicks off with some welcome listener input into last week’s questions of algos intentionally losing money to throw the “order sniffers” off the scent and the challenges facing Singapore’s efforts to build an FX liquidity hub.
