The platform matches the proven SaaS based technology from TradeSmart with the ability to connect to all liquidity provided by Banks, non-Banks and ECNs.

"FX traders worldwide now have access to a fully neutral FX EMS that can openly source liquidity and deliver on best execution requirements all from the same screen or API."
Jean-Philippe Malé, CEO of BidFX said, "BidFX demonstrates a precision of service unparalleled in our industry. From the ease of implementation, custom algo development and flexibility to handle large orders by using different trading protocols – BidFX delivers regulatory and operational alpha throughout the entire trade workflow."
Malé continued, "We are thrilled with the positive response the market has shown BidFX as evidenced by growth in platform adoption and volume which has doubled year to date including a record month in August. This is especially impressive considering certain segments of the market experienced a contraction over the same period."
