DCX is a revolutionary state of the art multi bank trading platform for bespoke OTC derivatives. It is an anonymous platform with no broker fee using prime brokers for clearing. One can think of it as an exchange for OTC products. In its first phase it offers bespoke FX options in major and emerging markets currency pairs.

It promises you a wider market place, faster price comparisons, best execution from not less than 15 price providers in a single action and no brokerage. DCX is really a market place where every DCX user can see all the current interests and participate by submitting bids and offers and the depth of each bid and offer prices is published.

DCX expands your horizons, giving access to an unprecedented number of institutions who specialize in specific currencies.
