CME is still very much focused on taking over the retail forex market (with the generous help of the CFTC) in the US and adding Traiana’s in due time may appeal to large forex trading clients and retail brokers like FXCM.
Traiana, leading provider of post-trade solutions, announces today that Traiana Harmony has been certified by CME Group for the submission of OTC FX Derivatives for clearing. As the first to complete the CME Group certification process, Traiana customers can now clear OTC FX derivatives using the Harmony CCP Connect solution.

With a single connection to Harmony, it provides access to all CCPs, thus lowering costs and complexity for market participants.
