Buy side using two-way prices in bid to hide trade intent

| Derivatives

European buy-side firms are increasingly asking dealers to quote two-way prices for interest rate swaps, in an attempt to hide their plans from the market.

Two-way pricing, also known as request-for-market (RFM), involves a firm asking for both the pay and receive price for a given instrument, instead of just one, as is usually the case in a request-for-quote (RFQ).
