What are the key trends across SIs?

Systematic internalisers (SIs) are widely regarded as an effective liquidity discovery tool for market participants. However, BMLL provides not just an overview of SI market share. But a clear breakdown of volumes traded across its constituent parts.

Where can end of day liquidity be found?

Offered to enhance liquidity discovery after the price formation at the close. Trade At Last and Closing Auction mechanisms have become more prevalent. A clear view of the volumes traded through these mechanisms enables participants to effectively interact with the closing price.

How critical is off-exchange trading to a consolidated view of liquidity?

Over-The-Counter (OTC) trading plays an important function in the European capital markets as a mechanism by which securities are traded. However, unlike trading on a lit order book, not all trading is addressable to all participants. Therefore, it is crucial to understand Europe’s true addressable liquidity profile.

What are the key patterns in LIS trading?

The Large-In-Scale (LIS) threshold reduces the market impact of large orders. Achieved by allowing participants to waive and defer pre- and post-trade reporting. Understanding the trend in above LIS volumes across different trading mechanisms enables market participants to improve liquidity discovery. Furthermore, also achieve an optimal execution strategy.
