FXall, a multi-bank foreign electronic platform, will offer connectivity to its foreign exchange (FX) platform within the Equinix NY4 International Business Exchange (IBX) data centre.
The service will be available to the community of Equinix Financial eXchange financial trading companies currently operating within the New Jersey campus, including buy-side and sell-side firms which trade multiple asset classes. In addition, the deployment to Equinix will enable FXall to directly reach the rich aggregation of networks and other strategic partners operating within Equinix’s Financial eXchange to service FXall customers with optimised performance.
Phil Weisberg, chief executive of FXall, said: “With liquidity from over 200 pricing streams and a comprehensive product set capable of supporting multiple execution strategies, the FXall platform provides active traders with access to the deep liquidity and advanced trading functionality they demand. Our partnership with Equinix presents another way for active traders to gain an edge in the market and we look forward to expanding the connectivity options available to further grow this client segment through Equinix’s extensive network of users.”
