LC Historical Spreads

This dashboard is focused solely on LC (Liquidity Consumer clients) analysis of the price streams they received on EBS Direct (EBSD) and EBS Select (EBSS).

Clients can track up to one year of records for their individual LP’s or a group of LP’s actual quoted price spreads. Please note data starts from January 2019 and will build up. Clients can see each LP’s average quoted price down to an hour by hour level, daily averages, or broken down as an average for hour for the 24 hour trading day.

Clients can plot all spreads received, including TOB through to 50mil plus full amount tiers.

If any quoted spread is greater than 3 times the average spread for the date range, it is removed from calculations. Shown LPs are not determined by actual LP / LC price tier mappings but instead are shown based on trading activity between LC and specific LP price tier. If there has being no trades we continue to show the LP price tier spreads for up to 14 days after the last trade

All information can be exported to csv as well.
