If I were a cynic I would raise a quizzical eyebrow at the timing of the CFTC’s announcement on Friday that it has proposed “supplements” to some of the detail around RegAT. This rule has raised significant controversy over what seemed to be a proposal to have source code stored with the CFTC, but, according to CFTC, apparently it was all a misunderstanding! A cynic would also ask why something that is "misunderstood" needs rewriting of course, but I'm sure we're above that...
FastMatch has made its proprietary algorithmic and transaction cost analysis (TCA) services available to all its subscribers.
The firm has been offering algorithmic trading to asset managers via its AgencyFX product for the past 18 months to satisfy increasing demand from this customer segment for algorithmic execution products.
Now it will be offering it to both buy and sell side users of the platform. Clients using FastMatch algorithms will receive automated TCA reports upon completion of their orders showing the algorithmic execution performance versus arrival price, FastMatch midpoint and other benchmarks.
