The all-new trade surveillance solution is the latest innovation from BXS (formerly Best Execution Solutions), a longtime leader in the data analytics and regulatory reporting space for the capital markets industry.

Some of the alerts include, spoofing, layering, marking the open/close, and insider trading among many others. By enabling connectivity on the IPC Connexus Cloud, new users and existing clients alike can now easily access the BXS platform and all other products including Rule 606 and TCA reporting, with expedited and seamless onboarding.
