Overview

Since its launch in 2002, CLS has warehoused the details of every trade by instrument (swap, spot, outright forward) for the 18 currencies it settles across 33 major currency pairs creating the largest single aggregated source of FX executed trade data available to the market. Access to this data provides an unparalleled view of market activity to support best execution, risk mitigation and reporting requirements.
