Mr Hughes added: “In the FX space, we are seeing the virtuous circle of our Managed Service that continuously delivers added value to existing customers and attracts new business as the product broadens and matures.”
The diverse offering will enable participating firms to overcome the issues in the margin FX space, from liquidity mirage to rejected orders due to delayed data. The feed handlers from Exegy’s expansive portfolio may be deployed on Exegy hardware accelerated appliances or the Exegy Trading Application Platform (TAP), an embedded software ticker plant product, used with the Exegy Client API (XCAPI) which allows applications to subscribe to normalized market data views on a per instrument basis.
