How does it work?
- It works in real-time by scoring each trade against the trade blotter to determine if it was executed within the acceptable market range.
- Trade blotter is based on the Tradefora Composite Index (TCI), which is using real-time pricing from 100+ brokers across 140 supported instruments (main FX pairs, precious metals, energy, and crypto) in order to obtain an aggregated average market price.
- TradeGuard’s benchmarking technology takes into account not only spreads but also commissions, resulting in a much clearer and a more representative true pricing index
- All the trades are evaluated tick-by-tick with millisecond precision
- This market price is used as a benchmark reference point to assess the quality of trade execution.
