Thomson Reuters ‘considering’ randomisation on Matching platform

Phil Weisberg, Thomson Reuters

Thomson Reuters is considering the introduction of a randomised pause on its flagship interbank FX trading platform, Thomson Reuters Matching, following suggestions from its client base, the vendor has confirmed.

The introduction of randomisation, which would apply a random-length pause to orders on the platform to eliminate speed advantages, would bring Thomson Reuters into line with age-old rival EBS and bank-backed start-up ParFX, both of which introduced randomisation this year.
