POSIT ATS

Move trades, not markets

POSIT is a leader in block crossing, helping traders anonymously source liquidity while minimizing market impact since 1987. POSIT delivers cost-effective execution and opportunities for price improvement, while employing Liquidity Guard*, a powerful and proprietary set of dynamic and scientific safeguards, to maintain liquidity quality.

Available in 30 markets worldwide, POSIT is one of the deepest pools of institutional liquidity in the world. Offering seamless access through Triton® and ITG OMS as well as major EMS and OMS providers, POSIT uses price/size pro rata matching logic (favoring size over speed) and offers only a few basic order types, thus reducing execution complexity.

Canadian Registered Dealers can trade anonymously in Canada’s premier broker-neutral dark pool, MATCHNowSM**. To learn more, visit the MATCHNow website.

ITG is at the forefront of the industry in our commitment to providing transparency. We have published a guide to POSIT as well as POSIT’s Form ATS.

Thinking

Record turnover in dark pool trading and POSIT

Dark pool trading across European venues reached just under €100 billion in June, resulting in the highest monthly level ever. In June, the U.K.’s surprise referendum result to leave the EU resulted in a day of extreme market volatility in global markets. POSIT proved to be a deep source of liquidity in difficult trading conditions, with our clients crossing a daily record of over £1 billion in European equities.
