NEW YORK, Sept. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Bloomberg announced today the release of a new analytics hosting service for algorithmic orders on FXGO, its global foreign exchange electronic trading solution. Goldman Sachs, with one of the most innovative foreign exchange offerings in the market, will be the first liquidity provider to participate.
The technology integrates Bloomberg's FX execution and straight through processing tools with Goldman Sachs' pre-trade, in-flight and post-trade analytics. It offers insights into the algorithmic order execution to the global community of Goldman Sachs clients who leverage seamless execution using the Bloomberg Terminal.
"Expanding Bloomberg's electronic trading solution FXGO to offer a new algo analytics framework allows us to give the FX community real-time access to the banks view of liquidity and order execution. This brings new levels of market transparency and trading efficiency to our clients in the dynamic and evolving space of algo execution," said Tod Van Name, Bloomberg's Global Head of FX Electronic Trading.
