NEW YORK, Dec. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FastMatch, (www.fastmatch.com) an Electronic Communication Network ("ECN") for foreign exchange trading, launched today a new web site www.fastmatch.com, publishing daily trading volume in real-time.
The FastMatch website introduces "the tape" to the FX spot and metals markets on its new web site. For the first time ever, the public can see all trades executed on the FastMatch platform. While the concept of "the tape" is standard in other asset classes such as equities and futures, in the FX spot industry this is something that has not existed for the public. The website will also provide insight to the top currency pairs by region with total volume associated to each pair.
FastMatch currently runs three independent matching engines globally in New York (NY4,) London (LD4) and Tokyo (TY3.) Each matching engine acts as separate ECNs and will emit their own market data, trades, and midpoint values. FastMatch's matching system offers customers both a unique and diverse pool of liquidity, with low latency with transparency.
"FastMatch is increasing the transparency level of the FX market to be on par with other asset classes," said Dmitri Galinov, CEO of FastMatch. "This is something we know our clients want and something we believe the institutional FX space needs."
