“Looking further ahead, this integration also presents multiple opportunities for how fixed-income traders could leverage the trading data. For example, traders could tap Glimpse data as an input to AI-driven automation workflow strategies in the future.”

FlexTrade Systems has announced the full integration of Glimpse trading data into its Fixed Income EMS solution, FlexFI,

The provider of multi-asset execution and order management systems tapped the buy-side driven data sharing network for unfiltered post-trade bond execution data in order to allow fixed income traders to incorporate and process vast volumes of Glimpse’s aggregated trade data and incorporate it into FlexFI’s Bond Widget.

Data enhances price discovery and delivers consolidated view of fixed income

Paul O’Brien, Founder and Chief Executive of Glimpse Markets, stated: “Integrating with leading EMS vendors is a crucial priority for Glimpse to ensure the breadth of data we offer is being incorporated into our clients’ fixed income trading workflows as seamlessly as possible. It’s exciting to see the new, innovative ways EMS vendors such as FlexTrade are taking this to the next level and unlocking unique insights from the Glimpse dataset, which will ultimately be beneficial to the end investor.”

Andy Mahoney, Managing Director, EMEA at FlexTrade, noted: “The incorporation of Glimpse’s innovative data offering into our fixed income EMS, FlexFI, has the power to transform how the analytics are used. As a first step, taking the raw data and displaying it in a visually rich format can help provide actionable insights to optimise price discovery. Looking further ahead, this integration also presents multiple opportunities for how fixed-income traders could leverage the trading data. For example, traders could tap Glimpse data as an input to AI-driven automation workflow strategies in the future.”

FlexFI’s visualisation tools provide a user friendly view of fixed income markets and allows traders to quickly search and analyse different bonds from the Glimpse data set.

When viewed alongside other market data sources and liquidity, it can enhance price discovery and deliver a consolidated view of the market for fixed-income trading.

Over the past decade, the US has been complaining about the amount of power which the BRIC group, and specifically China, has on the global economy. BRIC stands for Brazil, Russia, India and China; these were the world’s fastest growing economies. Only in the past 10 months, the US has turned their attention toward OPEC due to the prices of fuel. Nevertheless, China seems to have a strong influence even over the price of crude oil.
