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.
