Changing landscapes: Electronic trading picks up the pace in commodity markets

While electronic trading, technology and related infrastructures are now a well-established, if not essential, part of highly-liquid markets such as equities or spot FX, the rate of adoption has been markedly slower in the commodities space. But the past year in particular has seen a notable upturn in demand for electronic trading, from both newer entrants as well as more established venues.

Nicola Tavendale and Mike O’Hara of The Realization Group talk to Ollie Cadman of Vela, Jamie Turner of the London Metal Exchange, Andrew Polydor and David Perkins of TP ICAP, Fraser Bell of BSO and Bill Fenick of Interxion about the drivers behind this change.
