About Solid FX

Built upon a robust, modular and highly extensible technology base, the Solid FX trading platform provides unrivaled and ultra high-speed access to a vast pool of spot FX liquidity. Solid FX is the only true multi-bank ECN in mainland Europe, supported by an undisputed central counter party for clearing and settlement combined with low latency, high reliability and full transparency. Above all Solid FX offers free market access and no execution fees. This makes Solid FX a highly attractive FX venue for anyone in FX trading. Solid FX’s goal is to provide a transparent platform with a near zero latency matching engine, conforming to the business rules seen on regulated exchanges. Furthermore, high reliability and customer service are major focus points to ensure an optimal trading experience.

Some of the largest banks in FX are streaming their prices to the Solid FX platform and we also provide an impressive flow from institutional and asset management firms along with substantial proprietary turnover. This results in an FX platform that offers not only real liquidity but also the best spreads compared to any other institutional FX platform out there.

Although relatively new in the Forex spot trading arena, Solid FX is the perfect example of a currency platform that can easily compete with the best in the business. The newly developed Solid FX platform is a state-of-the-art currency-trading platform, providing deep liquidity in virtually every currency pair. The Solid FX technology offers a transparent platform, with a near zero latency matching engine which conforms to the business rules seen on regulated exchanges and trading platforms.

As a client you can connect electronically with your proprietary trading software to the Solid platform for both market data and order execution. Our engineers have built robust back-end order routing and transaction messaging for any market participant to connect to your bank or prime broker directly. With this typical straight-through-processing (STP) supporting the daily trading output, FX deals will lead straight into your
back-office systems. This allows you to use the transactional data without delay for reconciliation, risk management and additional processes. On top of that asset managers and institutional investors are very happy with our highly reliable and undisputed central counter party. This way their credit and counter party risks can be eliminated.
