The creation of the FX Pure trading platform, which evolved into the ParFX model, is seen by many as a transformative event in FX markets because it halted a decline in certain trading behaviours that were seen as unhealthy and restored a balance to the market.
Since ParFX’s inception in 2013, the company has been at the forefront of efforts to bring about change to the industry. It played a role in the development of the FX Global Code through its participation in ACI’s foreign exchange committee and was one of the first to sign up. e-Forex spoke to Roger Rutherford, Chief Operating Officer at ParFX, to discover more about the unique aspects of the platform and business model, and the steps it will be taking to continue its mission of improving trading behaviour in the FX market.
However, speed bumps are not a novel concept, and are not uncommon in spot FX markets like ParFX, Thomson Reuters Matching, and EBS Market, and in cash equities markets like TSX Alpha and IEX.
Roger Rutherford, COO of ParFX, which introduced a randomized matching pause several years ago on its platform, noted there has been what he says is a “dramatic rise” in speed-based trading over the past decade and that by removing speed as a key factor of success, there is a renewed focus on trading behavior, with greater quality and certainty of execution.
