Integral Development Corporation and Himawari Securities, Inc. have announced their partnership to provide customers with multi-source liquidity through a connection to Integral's FX Grid®. FX Grid is an inter-institutional connectivity and trading network, linking market making banks and liquidity providers to financial institutions. The liquidity in FX Grid is provided by multiple sources including eighteen FX market makers.
Himawari is using Integral's FX Inside API™, a set of application programming interfaces for accessing liquidity directly from FX Grid. The APIs are used by institutional takers for direct market access to multiple liquidity provider price streams. The APIs can also be offered by brokers to their clients for access to the broker's price streams.
Atsuro Yamamoto, Director, Himawari Securities, said, "Working with Integral allows us to offer our customers direct market access pricing from multiple liquidity providers. The system offers us the flexibility to respond quickly to changing customer demands. Further, FX Grid's resilient liquidity provides our customers with a very attractive value proposition."
"We are very excited to have partnered with such a renowned broker in this important FX market," said Harpal Sandhu, CEO, Integral Development Corporation. "We designed our solutions so that they easily integrate with the systems that a customer has in place. If there is a need, we also offer world-class business support 24/7."
The FX Inside API can be used to integrate proprietary electronic and algorithmic client-server, browser-based, and mobile application trading systems. The FIX protocol, as well as Java and C++ interfaces, are supported.
