Foreign Exchange Industry Structure, Players and Evolutionв€— Michael 3rd there’s r. KingвЂ
August 14, 2011
Electric trading has transformed forex markets over the past decade, plus the pace of innovation just accelerates. This formerly maussade market is today fairly transparent and transaction costs are only a small fraction of their former level. Entirely new brokers have joined the rub, including retail and high-frequency traders, while foreign exchange trading volumes have tripled. Market focus among sellers has grown reп¬‚ecting the heavy purchases of technology. Undeterred, some new non-bank market members have commenced to make markets, challenging the regular foreign exchange sellers on their own turf. This paper outlines the players in this market and the composition of their relationships. It also gives new data on how that structure has changed over the past twenty years. Throughout, this highlights problems relevant to exchange rate modelling. JEL Classiп¬Ѓcation: F31, G12, G15, C42, C82.
Keywords: exchange rates, algorithmic trading, market microstructure, electronic trading, high frequency trading.

It would be hard to overstate the importance of foreign exchange market segments for the earth economy. That they affect output and career through genuine exchange costs. They have an effect on inп¬‚ation throughout the cost of imports and item prices. They will affect foreign capital п¬‚ows through the dangers and returns of different assets. Exchange prices are justiп¬Ѓably a major focus for policymakers, the public, and of course the media.
To understand exchange rates you have to know how these prices are decided. This paper describes the foreign exchange market and reveals new proof on recent trends, therefore setting the stage throughout the guide. It п¬Ѓrst presents stylized facts within the market's size and composition. It then describes more carefully the motives, incentives, and constraints from the major players....
