UBS has announced a new feature to their FX research platform, FX Web. A new application called "Winners and Losers" has been added to the site's extensive analytic tool suite. Winners and Losers is an interactive data table and heat map that shows at a glance how currencies have performed against one another over time. Users can specify a base currency or time frame, and the application will display relative movement during that time period using color coding. The actual performance figures can also be displayed or hidden by clicking the relevant button.
The application has been particularly well-received by clients who have a complex matrix of currency risks to manage - particularly asset managers and corporate treasurers - as well as by hedge funds and CTAs who are searching for relative value trade ideas.
