There are significant economic benefits from switching from traditional OTC FX trading to FX futures, according to a new report from Greenwich Associates. A Bright Future for FX Futures, concludes that, in many scenarios, futures are a cheaper alternative to OTC trades in the FX market, with savings reaching upwards of 75% in some cases.  “Given the increased scrutiny that buy-side traders are placing on trading costs, along with regulatory schemes such as Basel III, which will likely drive execution costs higher, FX futures are a product that traders need to consider,” said David Stryker, Principal with Greenwich Associates Markets team, and author of the report.  More information about the report is available at:
