Trade Activity Dashboard

Trade Activity Dashboard, powered by Quant Analytics, offers unique insight to EBS referential data for global FX participants. This dashboard provides a view of both EBS Market and EBS Direct trade activity data for all major markets, plotted on graphs along with EBS Market bids/offers. The EBS True Rate, which is a blend of EBS Direct and EBS Market mid-rates (the blend will adjust for different currency pairs), is also plotted. The True rate is re-calculated at the end of each day in arrears to account for outlier price submissions and to correct for mismatches on intraday data that can occur in fast market conditions.
