Download Whitepaper: How to Game a Dark Pool
Dark pools were created under the premise that large orders will realize better executions if the orders remained hidden. Theoretically, this would protect them from market participants seeking predatory opportunities to trade against, or “game”, the large order. If dark pools are the home for large trade execution, one wonders why the average trade size of most dark pools is only a few hundred shares.
In his whitepaper “How to Game a Dark Pool”, Peter Berdeklis of Maple Securities discusses how to game orders from dark pools, using Canada’s own Alpha’s IntraSpread as an example. Peter answers the questions:
-What are gaming strategies dependent on?
-Can special order types prevent gaming?
-What makes gaming more difficult?
-Does relative volume affect dark pool executions?
Find out the answers to these and more by downloading the whitepaper.
Peter will be participating in a panel on dark pools this October at Quant Invest Canada. The panel will address:
-Will dark pools continue to grow in Canada?
-How do dark pools impact market liquidity?
-What is the current development stage of dark pool trading in Canada?
-Why do investors trade (or not) in dark pools?
-How to best integrate dark trading into existing public trading structure?
