smartTrade Technologies, an industry leader in cross-asset liquidity management software for banks, broker-dealers, ECN’s, asset managers, and large hedge funds today announced the release of LiquidityConnect™ for FX.

smartTrade Technologies LiquidityConnectâ„¢ for FX allows enterprises to have access to multiple FX markets from one unified point of connectivity, allowing rapid deployment of many out-of-the-box connectors.

The connectivity in the LiquidityConnectâ„¢ for FX has been built by smartTrade Technologies to offer to the market a product that is easy and fast to implement and requires less resources to support.

Gozlan continued, “We see LiquidityConnect™ for FX as a major advancement in the connectivity to the FX markets.”
