Target balance (create bank acc transf and FX deal)

Created by Erik Akerlund, Modified on Mon, 17 Apr 2023 at 04:41 PM by Jenny Johansson

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. This can also be used to automatically transfer all cash in foreign exchange currency to local currency to decrease currency exposure.
