Benefits

Price Transparency

An indicative streaming mid-rate, from the Swaps Data Feed, encourages members to exchange risk at mid-market in a dark pool. For those wishing to work their interest, resting bids and offers can be placed either side of the mid in a traditional limit order book, with rich functionality.

Surveillance

Comprehensive market surveillance reporting and robust rulebooks provide clients with confidence in the activities and conduct of other participants on the 360T platform.

Regulated Environment

MidMatch is designated as a Multilateral Trading Facility (MTF), meaning that market participants can trade on the platform secure in the knowledge that they are in compliance with the MiFID II requirements.

Relationship Management

Advanced relationship management tools offer visibility and enhanced controls. Users benefit from workflow efficiencies and electronic, fully auditable, and immediate changes.

Reduced Execution Costs

API connectivity brings execution efficiency and the opportunity to optimise credit decisions. The ability to execute at mid, and to move from a resting order to executing on a price stream further improves execution and can reduce cost and risk.

Efficient Use of Credit

Automated credit checks remove existing manual processes and provide real-time certainty of execution. Participants can choose between either an API connection to their own proprietary credit engines or 360T’s Limit Monitor, a parameterised risk management tool.

360T Differentiators

Indicative Streaming Mid-Rates


The indicative mid-market rate is provided via 360T’s unique Swaps Data Feed (SDF) allows members to submit interest to buy or sell in a dark mid book. The SDF delivers real-time data across the curve from ON out to 2 years in over 25 currency pairs, providing swaps market data in G10, EM and NDF’s. The limit order book also provides access to firm bid and offer liquidity.

Fully Automated Credit Model


The management of credit lines has, up until now, been one of the greatest challenges to the automation and growth of FX Swaps. MidMatch solves this by operating bilateral automated credit models that remove the manual credit check for FX Swaps trading.

GUI and API access


We have a long and successful history of working with our bank partners across the entire 360T technology suite. Recognising that, we believe that supporting the continued growth of the FX swap market requires a model that offers harmonious access for both GUI traders and API automated trading. GUI access is via our existing Bridge platform and the 360T MidMatch API connects trading, market data, credit checks, and execution STP.

Additional Features

MidMatch is available to traders via the 360T Bridge GUI. Firms can also connect electronically via FIX API, allowing both streaming prices to the limit order book and mid order placement.
