Hotspot FX's leading institutional and retail spot FX marketplaces are now accessible via Townsend Analytics RealTick trading platform. RealTick customers can trade spot foreign exchange on Hotspot FX's ECN-structured marketplaces with the same trading functionality, order types, depth-of-market and real-time market data that RealTick provides for listed and over-the-counter securities. Townsend Analytics RealTick marks the first implementation of Hotspot FX's FIX gateway, which is also in production with fund managers and market data providers.
"Distributing Hotspot FX through premier application providers such as Townsend Analytics provides customers with a highly efficient way to access our foreign exchange marketplaces," said John H. Eley, President and CEO, Hotspot FX Inc. "We are working on similar arrangements with leading order management systems and other platforms whose users will see tremendous benefits from their ability to execute foreign exchange trading and risk management strategies on the same platform they are using to trade other asset classes."
