FX midrate

Objective data.

Without it you aren’t measuring anything.

NCFX began calculating live FX midrates in 2012 because we realised that FX TCA isn’t worth the paper it’s written on if the data comes from inside your cost-chain.

Using data that comes directly from a trading platform which directly forms part of your cost, or data that comes from a source that can be used to execute your business by your bank or broker means that you are measuring inside the cost-chain. As soon as FX data comes from within your FX cost chain, the possibility is that you have a result that suits the cost-chain, and not you.

Use independent data to ensure meaningful comparisons between your trading choices.

New Change Currency Consultants Ltd, which trades as New Change FX or NCFX, is authorised by the FCA (FRN:793983) to carry on the regulated activity of administering a benchmark under Part 4A of the Financial Markets and Securities Act 2000, pursuant to Article 34 of the (EU) Regulation 2016/1011, and can be found on the ESMA Benchmarks Register.

NCFX continually measure the global FX markets to record a live, independent FX midrate.

Why use NCFX Data?

FX midrate

Accurate

NCFX data is created by aggregating aggregated live market bids and offers in real time. We don’t use any post-trade data and we only take data at ‘institutional’ size to avoid using information from ‘fishing’ orders to create an accurate midrate that reflects the live market mid.

Independent

NCFX Data is only available as a reference feed, and not as a trading feed. It is unique in the FX markets as it is the only source of live, aggregated data that is created in precisely the same way as the prices you trade on – but cannot be traded.
