Leveraging 20 Years of FX Data
On the twentieth anniversary of the venue, 360T has consolidated its executed data series to formulate the Flows Data Feed (FDF).
As one of the longest established multidealer trading venues in the FX industry, 360T is uniquely positioned to deliver a meaningful perspective on FX market activity. This is done through daily aggregation of flows from a truly diverse client franchise built over the past 20 years, which includes corporate treasuries, asset managers, hedge funds, commercial and private banks. This unique insight into FX trade flows shows trading activity on a daily basis across different client segments and currency baskets, not seen anywhere else in the market.
A New Input for FX Trading
By wrapping a deep layer of historical context around aggregated information about the direction of FX Flows, the FDF is able to deliver numerous benefits.
It can enable traders to better understand how flows trend within the FX market, allowing them to refine and improve their ability to detect and generate trading signals. Understanding directional trends within the FX market can allow for more effective FX rate forecasting and also enhances the ability of systematic trading firms to minimise their impact as they execute their own orders.
A Unique Source of Data
The data set reflects net FX Spot and Forward flows traded on 360T, over the preceding 24 hours. All of this is done with a firm eye on protecting the integrity of the underlying data through a series of filters and protection mechanisms which ensure complete anonymity through aggregation.
