The offering has two data interval rates – one in 100 milliseconds intervals which is similar to the current EBS Live service and one which is updated in 20 milliseconds intervals, which is five times faster than the current EBS Live data product. The changes in the pricing data are enabling better price discovery and will result in more transparency and liquidity.
Commenting on the launch, the Head of Business Development at Fluent Trade Technologies, David Faulkner, said: “This is a potential game changer for the way the FX market consumes live data, but firms need to be prepared. Our focus will be on simplifying connectivity to this important market data feed for our clients, so they can focus on their trading strategies to take advantage of the opportunity EBS Live Ultra presents.”
