JP Morgan has launched its foreign exchange (FX) algorithm tool on the Bloomberg Terminal’s application portal.
Bloomberg’s App Portal will provide access to JP Morgan’s FX execution tool, Algo Central, to Terminal users without needing to open another program. Algo Central offers pre-trade, real-time, and post-trade analytics to help manage multiple FX algorithms at the same time, and allows users to quickly change execution strategies.
Algo Central is also available on JP Morgan’s Market Execute platform.
Mike King, global business head for Bloomberg App Portal, says adding Algo Central is part of its goal to help create more value for application providers and users by embedding the applications within a Terminal user’s workflow.
“Bloomberg’s collaboration with JP Morgan is a prime example of the value clients receive when dealers integrate their proprietary analytics with the App Portal: an integrated workflow with functionality that they control, combined with the powerful combination of data and analytics of the Terminal. The App Portal enables our customers to deliver their applications to the Bloomberg user community via the Bloomberg Terminal,” King says. “It provides customers with a unified desktop experience instead of having to switch between multiple application screens.”
He adds Algo Central is the first institutional FX algorithm execution tool offered by a global bank on the portal.
Bloomberg Terminal users already have access to the portal. King says more applications are in the pipeline for the portal with most focused on niche areas. Recent applications launched on the portal cover predictive artificial intelligence tools; stock loans; private company analysis; and environmental, social and governance (ESG) data.
