Single bank FX platforms in the ascendancy, EuromoneyFXNews survey shows
Foreign exchange buy-side clients continue to move towards full adoption of electronic trading, according to a survey of buy side currency traders, conducted by EuromoneyFXNews, which has been published today.

The survey indicates that single-dealer platforms will be the main beneficiaries of this migration.
