NEW YORK, NY January 30, 2018
MarketFactory, the industry-leading foreign exchange technology platform, announced today that they added the Moscow Exchange (MOEX), the largest and most liquid Russian ruble (RUB) trading foreign exchange (FX) market globally, as a venue for Whisperer, MarketFactory’s ultra-low latency API that connects to the entire FX market. This addition now provides FX market participants using Whisperer access to 77 FX venues.
By adding MOEX as a venue, market participants can easily trade the Russian ruble without having to allocate scarce credit lines to hedge the RUB.
