Advanced Markets recognizes the importance of having a robust and non-latent technology infrastructure, one that caters to the needs of all institutional FX market participants, from banks and fund managers through to retail brokers and aggregators. Their platform offerings, and their underlying supporting technology, have been developed with one common goal, to facilitate Direct Market Access (DMA) via GUI, Bridge and/or FIX API.
By delivering anonymous, low-latency access to multi-bank, multi-asset liquidity, Advanced Markets presents a compelling alternative to the single and multi-bank RFQ and ECN models currently available to institutional traders. The Advanced Markets model takes the competitive, multi-bank elements of RFQ platforms and combines them with the low latency transparency and anonymity of ECNs servicing traders seeking consistent, interbank liquidity powered by robust, real-time market data. Recent refinements, such as the FOX – Full Order eXecution block order trading mechanism, are gaining the attention of hedge funds, asset managers, commodity trading advisors (CTAs) and corporate treasuries.
