XTX-ray makes state of the art sell-side execution analysis available to buy-side firms and counterparties will be able to evaluate the execution quality of their liquidity providers. The objective is to achieve a more transparent Spot FX market which is fair for all market participants. This presents yet another challenge to last look.
