Liquidnet launches analytics to equities trading application in EMEA

Rick Steves

“We are bringing these analytics to the dealer’s desktop to support the far more manual, specialized, and nuanced trading of complex blocks.”

Liquidnet has integrated its proprietary trading analytics into its equities trading application to provide traders with access to personalized pre and intra-trade analytics through real-time alerts and intuitive visualizations.

This feature enables greater informed execution decisions without leaving the Liquidnet equities application and adds efficiency to the process of supporting portfolio managers.

The agency execution specialist is making such insights available for all EMEA Members, forming a part of a series of upgrades designed to support client trading workflows.

Collecting, filtering, and re-distributing market insights

Chris Jackson, Head of Equities, EMEA and Global Head of Equities Strategy, said: “Our clients tell us one of the biggest challenges facing buy-side dealing desks and sales traders is collecting, filtering, and re-distributing market insights appropriately to their portfolio managers. Traders face more data, less time to absorb it, as well as greater pressure to add value to the investment process. These enhancements are part of the solution, providing actionable insights within one click.”

Rob Cranston, Global Head of Equities Product at Liquidnet, said: “We are bringing these analytics to the dealer’s desktop to support the far more manual, specialized, and nuanced trading of complex blocks. We seek to provide our community with intuitive alerts that fit the decision making of human traders as opposed to machines, moving beyond the market standard of simple quantitative alerts operating in a ‘black box’ environment.”

Data analytics in high-touch flow and hard-to-trade orders

After the successful application of data analytics into the no-touch and low-touch order flow, Liquidnet has gone live with this new workflow enhancement to address the challenge of replicating this to the high-touch flow and those hard-to-trade orders.

The new equities trading application includes real-time exception-based price and volume-related stock alerts, outlier monitoring, and single stock analytics to understand the market microstructure dynamics impacting your live orders.
