Cboe Global Markets’ Data Shop has added historical spot foreign exchange and bitcoin data from Cboe FX to its range of offerings.
The exchange group says that market participants and academics can back-test, analyse, and have the potential to increase trading opportunities, using the data, which includes TOP, which provides top-of-book data on currency pairs, including the quote time, bid price, bid quantity, offer price and offered quantity. Also available is Snapshot, which provides a look at the depth of book data at intervals throughout the trading day; and Cboe FX Tape.
High drama in this week’s podcast as it is revealed that editor Galen Stops has been removed from duties…either that or he is in Bali on holiday. Thankfully, P&L’s editor-in-chief Julie Ros is on hand to step in as guest podcaster, and while this does mean regular Colin Lambert feels he has to be on his best behaviour (he fails of course), it does mean we can bring you a quick trip around the wild life of upstate New York!
The last week has seen the return of volatility to crypto markets, which has at least got Lambert excited (he never can resist a moving market), although Ros has a different take on what people should be talking about when it comes to these still relatively nascent markets.
Our podcasters look at potential use cases for the technology underpinning the crypto space, liken it to the e-FX boom that accompanied the launch of P&L, before moving on to discuss the changing attitude of customers to FX markets.
The randomisation that has become associated with In the FICC of It is maintained as well, with a closing question to Lambert that is definitely from left field!
Denmark’s Jyske Bank says it has selected New Change FX (NCFX) as an independent data source for its capital markets business. The bank’s Markets division will use the data from the independent, ESMA regulated, entity to analyse its FX business.
“[NCFX] provides us with the ability to objectively measure our FX flows against a regulated set of data that is independent of our own stream of FX liquidity,” says Jørn (Luffe) Sodborg, director, head of e-trading and distribution at Jyske Markets.
