At least two dealers are poised to offer execution algorithms for foreign exchange swaps once liquidity on electronic interdealer venues reaches a critical mass.

BNP Paribas and JP Morgan have built execution algos for use by clients, but with electronic interdealer swap venues still in their infancy, the technology currently only accesses the banks’ internal liquidity.

FX swap volumes on platforms have grown but bilateral voice trading remains the preferred execution method.
