Next week on September 23 and 24, Profit & Loss hosts the latest of its virtual conferences, Forex Network Chicago, but this time things are different, with the addition of virtual exhibition booths for delegates to pop into during breaks between the panels. Registered attendees will be able to enter our exhibitor booths to see […]

In the FICC of It

There’s a slightly different feel to this week’s podcast as Colin Lambert is, not for the first time, given an education in the workings of Profit & Loss! With Forex Network Chicago nearly upon us, Michelle Hemstedt, commercial director at P&L, joins Lambert to explain how our virtual event is going to work, including an […]

And Finally…

Forex Network Chicago takes place later this month, from September 23-25, you can register here, and in our efforts to keep the events fresh we have introduced two “Ask the Experts” sessions where audience members – and P&L readers – can ask questions of a panel of specialists in their field.

The New Learning Curve: Using the Data

The paradox of data is, as observed by panellists at Forex Network Chicago, while the data itself is becoming cheaper and more easily accessible than ever before, the resources being allocated to analysing it are increasing, bringing with it increased costs.
“The core fundamental cost of collecting data and storing and processing it is cheaper than ever,” observed John Ashworth, CEO of Caplin. “The premium is going to be on the labour force that will be doing the work on the data.”

Is the FX Global Code of Conduct Working?

The FX Global Code is now over one year old and is generally seen to have been a success in establishing a blueprint for conduct in the markets. The number of firms adopting has been steadily growing but at such an uneven pace that some are wondering exactly how successful it will be? Next week’s Forex Network Chicago conference will kick off with an armchair debate and a panel session looking at the impact of the Code from two perspectives.

The Future of Liquidity Provision

Forex Network Chicago features two panels looking at the most important subject of liquidity provision in FX markets through two very different prisms. The first looks at the issue from the perspective of FX banks; how are they prioritising where they send liquidity and how are data capabilities changing how clients are evaluated? It will also look at the role of buy side as genuine liquidity providers and look at the impact on market conditions if what some consider to be a withdrawal from the market by the banks takes place.

In the FICC of It

In this week’s In the FICC of It podcast, Galen Stops breaks ranks to say he found one of Colin Lambert’s columns interesting, while the latter makes an appeal for expert knowledge on risk-free rates – if only so he doesn’t have to blag another podcast feature.
They also discuss the latest unfair dismissal outcome in the UK in which yet another FX dealer was found to have been wrongly sacked, as well as the potential implications for the fintech industry from a legal case in the US. In a busy podcast they also dispel some myths about AI – while at the same time making a big statement (is there any other kind?) on what will make AI trading successful; and they pick out their early selections for must-not-miss sessions from Forex Network Chicago in September.

Is TCA Just a Morality Carwash?

There has been a renewed focus on Transaction Cost Analysis (TCA) in recent years as buy side firms are becoming more savvy about how their execute their FX transactions and regulations such as Mifid II impose new best execution requirements.

But do market participants really know how to conduct effective TCA or is it just becoming a box ticking exercise designed to placate compliance staff, regulators and investors?

Banks are always quick to vouch for the accuracy and utility of their TCA reports, but can they be trusted to provide clients with an honest assessment of their own performance as a liquidity provider?
