It is possible in TS to set up rules for a target balance on bank accounts and automatically create a bank account transfer or FX deal to get the bank balance decided in the rule. It is possible to create both an internal FX deal or upload a suggestion to a trading station to create the external FX deal. This could be used to transfer cash to a bank account with higher interest or topup a bank account with negative balance to avoid interest.
