Profit & Loss Magazine: “FXSS becomes the bellweather for the disclosed, relationship model”

Colin Lambert, Managing Editor, Profit & Loss Magazine, comments on anonymous vs. disclosed models:

“[I]n the absence of other data, FXSS becomes the bellweather for the disclosed, relationship model and last week was eye-opening in that the platform hit a new record above $86 billion, which is not only a serious number, but also suggests to me that volatile conditions lead to those customers not interested in the broker model going to a venue where the LP knows who they are pricing.
