Thomson Reuters has launched a global analysis and commentary service, FX Buzz, that aims to provide real-time FX insight to market participants.
FX Buzz has been integrated into Thomson Reuters desktops, Eikon and Reuters 3000 Xtra, allowing traders to consume and act on market information through a single service.
The tool has been designed to give users a clear and concise view of how events impact the FX market, providing forward-looking analysis, market flow, sentiment and trade ideas.
Based in the main foreign exchange centres in Europe, Asia and North America, the FX Buzz editors and analysts will provide dedicated coverage of G10 currencies plus other major currencies and emerging markets. The team has access to Thomson Reuters FX data as well as Reuters geo-political and macroeconomic news to fuel their findings, analysis and recommendations.
“FX traders are bombarded by all the news and information that comes across their desks each day; they need a source that they trust to provide a filter and opinion that matters,” said Andrew Hausman, managing director, fixed income and foreign exchange, Thomson Reuters. “With FX Buzz we will be providing short, pithy summaries of market-moving developments in foreign exchange with predictions, opinions and technical analysis from people who have years of experience both working in and writing about the FX markets.”
Meanwhile, broker Valbury Capital has gone live with its Liquidity Management Platform, provided by technology company TraderTools, to provide an integrated FX trading platform. The platform offers liquidity aggregation, order management and pricing engine abilities.
“We chose TraderTools’ Liquidity Management Platform because of its field-proven reliability and their experience in delivering connectivity from the leading investment banks,” said Mark Hanney, CEO, Valbury Capital.
