The Full FX Podcast – Currency Matters, with CMC Connect
Posted by Colin Lambert. Last updated: July 11, 2023
The podcast is back and in this edition Colin Lambert and Sam Horowitz, head of FX distribution and liquidity management at CMC Connect look to cut through some of the noise around different FX platforms and the quality (and quantity) of market data – especially in an era of changing volume patterns.
The two discuss the influences of exchanges as they build their ownership of platforms in the OTC FX space, as well as how data from last look venues can be used and the importance of being able to understand the nuances of different feeds. There is also time for a discussion on what “good” data looks like, as well as whether there is a threshold at which the cost/value proposition tips into negative/positive territory.
Finally, Lambert is keen to investigate whether there is a third way – a different approach to market data in FX – and yes, the conversation does stray into the world of a Tape!
