Cboe FX unveils plans to launch central limit order book for FX market

Maria Nikolova

The new order book is set to launch on June 29, 2020 and will offer trading in the most actively traded pairs in the spot FX market.

Cboe FX Markets today announced its plans to launch Cboe FX Central, a new central limit order book (CLOB).

Cboe FX Central aims to be an all-to-all market in which all liquidity in the order book is firm, meaning it is instantly executable by all clients. The new order book is scheduled to launch on June 29, 2020 and will offer trading in the most actively traded pairs in the spot FX market: EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD, AUD/USD, USD/CAD, USD/CHF, USD/CNH.

Cboe FX Central builds on the traditional CLOB model, recognizing the value contributed by liquidity providers (LPs) by rewarding them with faster market data when their liquidity is at or close to the best bid or offer (BBO), creating a deeper order book, which in turn benefits liquidity takers. Cboe FX Central market data will be available at three different speeds (real-time, 3 millisecond delay, 10 millisecond delay) and the speed at which market data is delivered is determined by where the LP’s liquidity is relative to the Cboe FX Central BBO.

The order matching mechanics of Cboe FX Central are consistent with other central limit order books in the FX market. All orders in the book are subject to a minimum quote life of 25 milliseconds and orders are executed on a price (displayed then hidden) / time priority.

With the launch of Cboe FX Central, Cboe FX now offers a comprehensive suite of trading services to meet the diverse needs of the FX trading community, covering all manners of how clients interact in the market. These include a firm order book (Cboe FX Central), sweepable order book with curated firm and non-firm liquidity (ECN), and full amount trading which provides clients with a solution for larger order risk transference with low market impact (Full Amount).

In the first quarter of 2020, Cboe FX reported average daily value (ADV) traded of $43.3 billion, earning a strong quarterly market share of 15.7%. In May 2020, Cboe FX reported record market share of 17.3%, surpassing the previous record of 16.6% set in December 2019.
