FX Transaction Cost Analysis

Insight into Spread Income

Spread income is the revenue model of any FX trading counterparty, and since FX spreads are not regulated, they are subject to manipulation. Klarity’s research has demonstrated how buy-side participants in North America tend to pay excessive fees. In particular, a study we conducted that was published by Dow Jones (2008) showed that nearly three-quarters of all trades examined were uncompetitive. That is, the FX rate provided by the bank was worse than the average intraday rate on the day the trade was executed, and in many cases completely outside of the day’s trading range.
