B2C2, a cryptocurrency liquidity provider, has launched streaming pricing with point-and-click execution on its OTC platform.For the first time, B2C2’s clients will be able to view and execute trades on a real-time, two-way market via the firm’s secure web interface. The new functionality allows market participants to monitor live pricing in user defined quantities and execute with the click of a button, as they would on traditional FX trading platforms.Speaking to Profit & Loss about the launch, Philip Gillespie, CEO of B2C2 Japan, says: “We were one of the first firms to issue RFQ trading electronically and we already have a web portal where clients can go for trading and settlement. What we have done now is the next step forward, so that when a client goes onto the web-based GUI, not only do they have the RFQ and settlement request, but they can also see continuously streaming, two-way pricing.”
KACE, a division of Fenics Software, has released an update of its kACE Pro platform that will enable clients to stream FX options prices to internal and external clients, single-dealer platforms, execution venues and third party platforms.Richard Brunt, managing director, comments: "This new release allows our clients to stream FX options prices to internal users, sales teams, wealth managers, or directly to their clients. Our agnostic approach to front-end users means that our clients can distribute their prices via a wide range of channels and venues using a single kACE pricing and dealing engine. We have already successfully deployed this new release with several existing and new clients in Europe and have a strong pipeline to continue this rollout globally in the first quarter of 2019."
