Bloomberg’s Fixed Income trading platform and complete execution management solution provides liquidity, trading functionality and straight-through processing for all fixed income securities, derivatives and futures.
The TSOX execution management system allows liquidity takers to send orders into Bloomberg and route them to the market. Orders can be stages directly from a client’s OMS, or uploaded from Microsoft Excel, executed and allocated in one click. When orders are filled, the client’s OMS is updated automatically. Voice matching and IB trading allows orders to be staged in TSOX where were not traded electronically (ie, over the phone or instant message), and recorded for compliance and reporting.
FIT, Bloomberg’s trading platform, links all available fixed income electronic trading products into one portal and provides multi-dealer, executable composite pricing, so you can stage, monitor, trade and allocate trades through a single function on the Bloomberg terminal. You can also trade with FIT from your TSOX blotter.
FIT is divided into a control area and a market monitor section. You can use the control area to load a market page and then choose a tab to display a security type on the market monitor. On the market monitor, you can watch rates and click a bid or ask price to launch a trade ticket.
The market monitor section allows you to watch the current bid and ask prices for a type of security within your chosen market, so you can follow market movements and identify the rates at which you want to trade. You can click a price or enable a multi-leg deal to submit a trade ticket to your chosen dealers.
