How have the buy side reacted to FX workflow disruption and volatility caused by Covid-19?

Since March 120+ North American and European buy side FX traders have joined a series of Finance Hive virtual discussions to share their experiences transitioning to remote trading and adjusting their trading strategies to cope with increased volatility in currency markets.

We’ve collated the insights and feedback to provide a global view of how desks from the biggest AUM firms globally are dealing with the disruption.

The most significant way we changed our trading style was by moving away from RFQ. Bank’s pricing streams were so dislocated and spreads so wide that we preferred to rely on algos and high touch execution. If you think of it as a scale with high touch on one side and low touch on the other, the changes we made probably cancelled each other out.”
