GFI Group Conducts First "Matching" on EnergyMatch Europe Platform

Tuesday, August 09, 2011

GFI Group Inc. has conducted the first matching* of dry freight forward freight agreements “FFAs” trades on its premier electronic platform EnergyMatch Europe.
EnergyMatch Europe is GFI Group’s electronic trading platform for energy and commodities and the market leader for the trading of Dry Freight FFAs. The screen allows for trading in co-mingled markets (co-mingling is the ability to clear trades with different clearing houses) and provides customers with the choice of CCP (Central Counter Party Clearing House) for clearing.
Along with Dry Freight FFAs, UK and European power and gas, coal, fuel oil, emissions and wet freight FFAs can be traded electronically on EnergyMatch Europe. Iron ore will be added to the offering imminently.
GFI Dry Freight offers its clients alternatives in their method of execution: voice brokered, hybrid (voice & electronic) and fully electronic via matching and Join-the-Trade “JTT”**.
*Matching is a process run on various GFI electronic trading platforms which allows traders to anonymously contribute and trade at mid-market levels on specific contracts during periodic sessions. Sessions are carried out during set times in the day and have short durations of a few minutes. GFI Matching sessions help create concentrated and deep liquidity pools that allow large volume trades to be transacted at mid-market levels.
**JTT is a workup functionality that allows market participants to anonymously trade large volumes for a pre-defined period of time, at the prevailing market price without the risk of distorting the market. GFI introduced Join-the-Trade for the UK Gas market and for Dry Freight in November 2010.
