Tonbridge AL 03:12 GMT December 27, 2007
The reality is that the London 4pm fix coincides with the NY cut at 11am and is more often used by option traders

The only other FIX is the daily official quote by the PBOC of the Yuan

I would say that the only people who are really privy to the Fix in London or NY are those involved whereas as you can see the Tokyo Fix is more widely broadcast.

The Fix as far as we as retail accounts are concerned is just a heads up as to when some noise may enter the market. we are not privileged to know what "they" are transacting rather than trying to second guess what "they" are doing surely the only arbiter is price action and the speed of movement.

Subject:The European Central Bank (ECB) sets currency fixings every
The European Central Bank (ECB) sets currency fixings every working day in Frankfurt at 2:15 p.m. Frankfurt time. The actual procedure of this fixing is done by observing the spot rates in the inter bank market, in which the ECB also participates. Traders of the ECB in various locations get together to decide on how to set the fixing. The quantity quoted is not a bid price or an offer price the ECB or anybody else necessarily trades at, but is rather used for statistical and official means, for instance tax computation or economic research.

Definitions of London Fix on the Web:

* Twice-daily bidding session in London of the five major gold traders, at which the price is fixed or set. The London Fix is the basis for many gold contracts worldwide. read history of the UK fix

* Price set each day in London by five old-line firms. The “fixing price” reflects the price at which buy and sell orders from the firms’ customers’ are in balance. The London Fix is an internationally recognized benchmark price for that particular moment in time.

Forex fixing is similar to gold (I assume). This is from the NFA:

Fix or Fixing The settling of the gold price at 10:30 a.m. (first fixing) and 3:00 p.m. (second fixing) in London by five representatives of the London Gold Market.

Subject:London Fixing
I have seen flurries of activity around the London fixing. Could someone explain what happens at this time and why the market often moves in a sudden way.
