And Another Thing…

Today’s column is dedicated to the Swiss National Bank for its ineptness five years ago yesterday, which changed the foreign exchange industry forever and gave this column literally months worth of ammunition. The SNB is a signatory to the FX Global Code, so given the guidance on disruptive actions, I wonder how it would handle […]

And Another Thing…

The second – and penultimate – Irrational of 2019 is the Event of the Year and obviously this had to be held back to ensure that the Great British public did not don their subversive hats again and surprise at last week’s election. They did not to any great degree (although I don’t recall a […]

In the FICC of It

There is plenty for Colin Lambert and Galen Stops to get their teeth into this week as the BIS released a series of papers studying the data in the Triennial FX Turnover Survey.

Several of them are cross-border and are likely, therefore, to involve at least a degree of FX activity – some […]

And Finally…

Last week saw the announcement of the closure to the public of macro hedge fund giant Moore Capital – an act that would have bought a wry smile to generations of FX traders who have, over the decades, found the firm’s business (ahem) a little tricky to monetise. Obviously there are multiple circumstances that led […]
