CFH announces its Zero hold time liquidity pool in response to market requirements

“Historically there has been a trade-off between speed of execution and pricing. Traders should have the option to choose which is right for them based on their trading style and requirements.” Andy Biggs, Head of Liquidity, CFH

CFH have created a dedicated Zero hold time liquidity pool that is aimed at clients whose priority is speed of execution and those who want multiple liquidity pools for different trading strategies or requirements, all through a single account where everything is fully cross margined and netted down automatically providing a capital and cost efficient solution.

Counterparties in the prime of prime space tend to focus on speed of execution or good pricing with a hold time meaning that traders who want to take advantage of both have to sign-up in two places and split their funds. With CFH you can trade on both through the same account.

The CFH Liquidity Team has curated a Zero hold time pool that minimises the gap in pricing to standard feeds and has sustainable pricing that performs well in times of volatility.

CFH’s Liquidity Partner XTX Markets, already operates this model and both companies believe that the market will move to a Zero hold time model in the future as the justification for imposing a holding window weakens, due to the speed at which primary market data is updating.

“Extending Zero hold time liquidity is a fantastic initiative. This product shows there is no reason for hedge funds and established brokers to accept excessive last look windows or quotes they cannot hit, in today’s market.” Matt Clarke, Head of Distribution and Liquidity Management EMEA, XTX Markets
