FXSpotStream to Launch Low-Latency Architecture
FXSpotStream, which provides a multibank FX aggregation service for spot FX trading, announced the global deployment of a new low-latency architecture on Wednesday. According to the press release, the infrastructure aims to improve the firm’s market data processing times.
The announcement noted that such deployment is taking place in New York. It will involve a full overhaul of the existing infrastructure for FXSpotStream’s liquidity providers and clients. “We have grown tremendously since our launch in 2011, becoming the 3rd largest FX Service by volume with an ADV this year at USD48.5billion. At the same time, we have placed great importance on the speed and quality of our market data distribution. Our aim is to provide our clients plus liquidity providers the best-in-class infrastructure and prioritize the performance and reliability of the Service in the same way as our deep product offering. Ensuring that our clients receive pricing and can send orders in a timely manner is of critical importance,” Alan Schwarz, FXSpotStream Co-Founder and CEO, said.
The executive noted that the implementation of the architecture will see an improvement of times after setting a maximum time to provide a level of consistency in performance during periods of high market volatility. “As we look forward to the next decade, we remain very bullish about our business. We recently launched over our API support for all of our banks’ Algos and supported Allocations functionality. In just two months since we went live with our Algo offering we have already supported USD3.2billion of client Algo orders. Work to add a GUI to support Algos and Allocations is underway and is expected to be live by late Q1 2022,” he added.
