The sharp rise in electronic trading of cash US Treasuries demands new solutions for clients to access liquidity. Faster moving markets require the buy side to move from trade idea to execution as rapidly as possible with the greatest control. The integration of Credit Suisse Onyx's liquidity directly into Bloomberg's fixed income staging and trading blotter TSOX delivers these solutions. Clients can access this functionality by typing TSOX<GO> on the Bloomberg Professional service.

As a leading innovator in the electronic trading of fixed income products, Credit Suisse is able to provide advanced execution capabilities directly to the client. Bloomberg's TSOX workflow is used extensively across the industry by thousands of market participants globally. Now clients will be able to trade US Treasuries with the same ease and algorithmic capabilities they have used for years in equities, FX and futures.

"Our most advanced clients are asking for smarter and more automated ways to trade with us and we are delighted to be partnering with Bloomberg to provide this," says Ryan Sheftel, Head of FID eCommerce for Credit Suisse. "With all the structural changes in the Rates market we see this as a continuation of our commitment to innovation in electronic trading with much more to come."

Bloomberg offers subscribers access to Credit Suisse Onyx's expanding stable of fixed income-specific algorithms and streaming liquidity that includes pairs, custom butterflies, basis and more. The move further enhances Credit Suisse Onyx's leading fixed income electronic trading solution, offering clients access to outright trading and algorithmic execution against the immense liquidity provided by Credit Suisse's electronic liquidity pool for rates, Clearwater.
