MarketPrizm, a provider of market data and trading infrastructure platforms, announced the launch of an FX trading tool that purports to let users connect with multiple liquidity providers and trading platforms worldwide. The system, dubbed PrizmFX, features low-latency connectivity and co-location to more than 30 electronic communication networks and bank direct liquidity pools.
It also gives users a connection to matching engines in London, New York and Singapore, MarketPrizm said.
The firm added that it was driven to launch the FX platform as a result of rising global access costs, which have been on the upswing as a result of market fragmentation, and the need for hedge funds, banks and proprietary trading firms to have connectivity and co-location to multiple venues.
