Trading technology and automation is augmenting the buy-side trader’s responsibilities
with more output per head on the desk. It is now a cliché to say that each trader should
focus their time where it is most needed and technology will make this possible.
The buy side’s use of FX trading algorithms
is on the rise and K&KGC is assisting both
existing and new users with benchmark
guidance on which technologies the buy
side are using. With the increasing focus on
FX trading, the buy side indicate a strong
interest in new trading technologies to
streamline their workflow. It is no longer
a question about ‘if’ but only ‘when’ new
technologies will emerge on the buy-side’s
FX trading desks.
