The FX trading database allows market participants across the sell-side, buy-side, regional banks, hedge funds, brokers, and central banks to connect, analyze their trading data, and collaborate.

FlexTrade Systems has made Tradefeedr’s data analytics API available within the FlexTRADER EMS as an add-on, the provider of multi-asset execution and order management systems announced.

A European buy-side firm has already gone live and in production using the integration of Tradefeedr, which enables collaborative analysis of trading performance between liquidity providers and their clients using standardized common metrics.

Market participants interact with each other for insights

With Tradefeedr, the sell-side to submits trading data on behalf of their buy-side clients in order to allow market participants to interact with each other and deliver new insights and better decision making for all.

The integration caters mostly to buy-side trading teams using the FlexTRADER EMS looking for real-time, analysis-ready FX data.

Andy Mahoney, Managing Director, EMEA at FlexTrade, said: “A significant operational burden buy-side trading teams face is producing accurate, normalized FX data on which to base trading decisions. Mahoney added, “By integrating Tradefeedr directly into our EMS order blotter, analysis-ready data and analytics are available at their fingertips, delivering actionable intelligence when FX traders need it the most.”

Balraj Bassi, Co-Founder at Tradefeedr, commented: “Tradefeedr’s FX trading and analytics platform removes the siloes traditionally associated with the buy- and sell-side, engendering better relationships and decision making, and removes the need to aggregate the disparate data sources associated with FX market and trading data. As a result, our platform will deliver significant benefits to our mutually shared clients by delivering better access to trading information.”

FX trading database for brokers

The FX trading database allows market participants across the sell-side, buy-side, regional banks, hedge funds, brokers, and central banks to connect, analyze their trading data, and collaborate.

Tradefeedr provides them with standardized data to drive informed decision making and stronger relationships with other market participants.

The solution boasts a library of pre-existing analytics templates covering everything from transaction cost analysis, custom best execution policies and liquidity management, as well as business-user friendly tools for reporting and analytics.

The API integration delivers FX data and pre-built analytics directly into the FlexTRADER EMS Order Blotter, which allows clients to review their trading markouts, impacts, and spreads directly with liquidity providers within FlexTRADER EMS.

Tradefeedr was founded in 2018 by Balraj Bassi and Alexei Jiltsov, former Lehman Brothers executives. Together they also launched Blacktree, a macro systematic hedge fund.

In December 2020, the company raised $3 million in funding from Michael Spencer’s private investment company IPGL, NEX, and NEX CEO Seth Johnson, who is Tradefeedr’s Chairman.
