In February, Profit & Loss reported that GTX had partnered with Ideal Prediction, an independent trading analytics and data science company, to offer its clients analytics aimed at optimising their FX trading.
GTX first hired Ideal Prediction to optimise client liquidity pools and trade execution performance in March 2016 and the perceived success of this project, combined with the management teams’ strong working relationship with Ideal Prediction CEO, John Crouch, from his time working at Credit Suisse, prompted the two firms to look for more ways to utilise the data at GTX’s disposal to help its clients.
The end product of this was the analytics tool that GTX began offering to firms in February.
The news that State Street has gone live as the 13th liquidity provider (LP) on FXSpotStream comes as the service has reported its highest ever month of average daily volumes (ADV).
“We closed the year on a strong note with the addition of State Street to the existing panel of global banks on our Service. State Street is now live globally and pricing to our clients out of our sites in New York, London and Tokyo,” says Alan Schwarz, CEO of FXSpotStream.
Speaking to Profit & Loss about the addition of State Street, Schwarz observes: “What’s interesting about them is that their e-FX franchise is at a different life cycle than some of our other liquidity providers and they have been focusing on improving their electronic pricing service.
