TraditionDATA launches new FX data packages

5813 TRAD FX social campaign V2 1

London, 2 November 2022: TraditionDATA, the data and information services division of Compagnie Financière Tradition (Tradition), has released a series of new foreign exchange (FX) data packages enabling clients to gain a competitive advantage through access to cutting-edge data and analytics. 

Leveraging insights from Tradition’s globally recognised broking desks, the FX data packages provide a comprehensive view of the global FX markets. Content is further enhanced through application of TraditionDATA’s in-house analytics models, providing pricing on 3500 Spots, Crosses and FX Forward across 60 currencies. Pricing is also available across 268 forward and NDF currency pairs. 

The new FX data packages have been released at an important time in the FX industry which has experienced extreme volatility in recent months, with the dollar and yen surging to 20 and 32-year highs and with the pound and euro slumping to 50 and 20-year lows respectively. In times like these, it’s vital that firms get the data they need to make smart trading decisions. 

For example, corporates that don’t have hedging policies in place are now looking to implement them, while those with a programme in place are seeking to adjust hedge ratios and tenors to mitigate the potential impact of currency volatility on their bottom lines. Accurate, unbiased data is paramount to ensure CFOs and treasurers have all the information they need to build an effective hedging strategy. 

With this uncertainty set to continue in the months ahead, access to real-time and historical market-driven data from one of the world’s leading IDB’s is vital for market participants to gain the insights required to maximise alpha and manage risk. 

The FX data packages are available across a variety of regions including G10, Global Emerging Markets, Africa, Greater China, Emerging Europe, Australasia, South East Asia and Latin America. TraditionDATA also offers specialist packages covering FX options including FX Options Enhanced Volatility Surfaces, in partnership with Numerix, and Tradition-ICAP FX Options. 

The launch of the new FX data packages aligns with TraditionDATA’s mission to provide smaller, granular packages based on currency, region or product which enables clients to only pay for what they need while gaining greater market transparency.

 

Jim Mahn, Global Head of Product - TraditionDATA, commented: “Volatility has spiked across FX markets in recent months and in times of uncertainty market participants need data and insights they can trust. Our new FX packages leverage cutting-edge data from Tradition, one of the largest global interdealer brokers, and provide clients with a competitive advantage. By gaining a clearer view of the market and availing of our in-house analytics, clients can benefit from an unrivalled level of market transparency, enabling them to manage risk and maximise alpha effectively.” 

James Watson, Global Head of Sales - TraditionDATA, commented: “We are committed to providing our clients with access to the high quality market-driven data they need, when they need it. By further enhancing our product suite, we continue to deliver on this front and fulfil our clients’ data requirements within the global FX markets.”
