Alex Clark, Senior Execution Trader, recently spoke with 360T for their Business as Un-Usual podcast series. In the discussion Alex talks about the liquidity issues caused by the sudden combination of market volatility and people working from home. However, he says that despite stressed liquidity conditions our FX algorithms have on the whole performed well, continuing to be able to execute the majority of our orders, enabling the trading team to focus their attention on the most challenging markets, such as EM currencies, options and NDFs. Explaining that enhanced tools are in high demand amongst buyside firms right now, Clark discusses how algos have needed to adapt to changing market conditions in recent weeks.
