LMAX is large % owned by a betting shop and maybe also goldman sachs too, and changed their name to LMAX exchange.
And i see articles around how they use different more efficient matching and clearing model.

But i would if they are a real exchange. The banks to bank feeds seem to be what forex is really about. I wonder if they are CFD's.
That they maybe more like CMC and IGMarkets,

I am still very wary of names such as fxcm, from many years ago. Not saying that their pro account is or isn't good, but that mud sometimes sticks.

Any ideas on this group?

Goldman Sachs is no longer involved there and LMAX is offering an ecn setup. they do offer fx and cfd's.

LMAX is not a market maker in any products. all fx and spot metals are ecn, all cfd are from goldman sachs and the other company

I wouldn't call them an exchange though, which is what they pitch themselves as. Had a look at them and quite frankly I think Oanda is a better proposition.

Gawd - 🙄 - all we need, an affiliate telling us whatever we want to hear for a sale.

And how exactly is LMAX an exchange?

I don't think it's an exchange, but a type of exchange, as says on their website:
'The LMAX Exchange is a neutral execution venue where buyers and sellers meet, show their interest in an instrument by placing orders and where orders are matched according to our efficient, best-execution, institutional style matching rules'.

Notice the 'institutional style' at the end.

They list companies or they don't, if they don't they're not an exchange. It's a broker. Simple as that. And if they start off by misrepresenting themselves then I have an issue with that.

Yes, I agree. It's like an investment firm which uses the word 'bank' it its name.

FROM THEIR WEBSITE:
Price you see = price you get - There are no dealers on the LMAX Exchange, making Forex and CFD trading on the LMAX Exchange neutral and transparent. With no dealer intervention - requotes are a thing of the past - our cutting-edge technology purely and simply matches clients’ best bids to the best offers. [^]


i am not sure how this is possible. if their servers determine that a particular instrument is available to be traded at $X, and then they transmit that price to be displayed on my terminal, and then i (or my software) clicks on a buy or sell button, how is it possible that by the time that my order gets back to them that said price is guaranteed to be still available?

they must be doing something very clever, and i would like to understand how they do it.

hello,

this organization is most definitely operating as an exchange, something of a closed circuit exchange, but an exchange nevertheless.

my thinking is that the only issue/drawback to the issue that it is operating as a closed circuit exchange might be that the size of their order book might not be that big of a book, but if that book should become large or larger, this is quite possibly going to be the cool cat trading server system, and that is a good thing.

assuming that i do in fact understand the mechanics of their trading servers, lol, which i probably do not fully understand the mechanics of their system and therefore it is my suggestion that we get something of a more detailed explanation of the above flowchart, not everybody that trades knows how to read flowcharts and it is just good practice to go ahead and write a full explanation of any flowchart that is as promising as the above flowchart. ;)

regarding the issue that they are owned by some kind of betting company, i would like to be the first to come forward and recognize that this is not a negative sign for a company like this, this is actually something that this company should sing about and they should wear this betting company issue like it is a badge of honor. personally, i like the idea that some pimps are in the house and that they just might know how to take care of some trading business.

my best wishes to you in your work.

Quoting Sarauharrison,

I agree with you very much. I had a meeting with Andreas Wigstrom from LMAX (one of the partners of LMAX) and they are looking to expand largely into Asia, either Singapore, Hong Kong or Japan within the next 5 years.

Reading from their site, they are also trying to move away from retail, and more towards instituitional volumes, which would explain why they have java API trading, as pointed out by Sarauharrison earlier.

The reason I met up with Andreas for LMAX is because I am an IB for LMAX (as per my signature below - Abundance Trading Group) and we negotiated a 12% commission discount for LMAX traders

Armada Markets 5% discount, Axitrader $1.50 discount, IC markets $1.50 disc, LMAX 12% discount, Price Markets 5% disc, FinFX (accepts US traders) $0.7 ECN disc, Global Prime $1.50 discount, SynergyFX $3.50 discount, Blackwell Global $6 rebates - Abundance Trading

LMAX have MTF Execution Type which is better than ECN.

Although they are more oriented towards Institutional Volumes, but they are still available for Retail Clients.

Usually their Initial account opening deposit is $10000 but I can get it open for anyone interested for $1000 deposit to try them out. You will also be getting 16% Commission discount.

You can't hedge with Lmax and they don't like news traders. Just so people know.

If you don't try, you will never know.
