Deutsche launches platform in trading push

Exchange2Deutsche Bank (DB) has launched its “next generation” foreign exchange (FX) trading platform as part of the bank’s ambition to trade €1 trillion every week in the next two years.  DB says the platform, part of its Autobahn FX offering, is the first FX platform to provide a combined electronic and voice trade “blotter”. A blotter is a tool that combines data from different sources and platforms. The blotter shows all trades regardless of execution channel.  Zar Amrolia, global head of foreign exchange, said: “This launch represents a quantum leap forward for the FX market at a time when volumes continue to increase.”  The platform will be rolled out in staged releases over the coming months. ©2012 funds europe
