Twenty-seven bond dealers are already live on the network, providing axe information in real-time for over 30,000 different securities, with over USD210 billion in gross notional, across 20 different denominations, including USD100 billion in US sourced liquidity. This is generated from over 55,000 pre-trade real-time “axe” indications in the network, daily. The network’s popularity is expected to continue through 2019 as more dealers come to grips with an ever-changing market structure and look for more efficient and cost-effective ways to connect to their clients.
