The Best Liquidity
Access to liquidity routes is truly important!
Every professional trader knows that liquidity and quality of order routing and execution are much more than the size of the commission.
Using a DMA broker enables you to pick and choose the order route for your trades. Our clients rely on the ability to directly seek and route to deep liquidity venues beyond direct exchanges. We can provide virtually any liquidity route. We enable access to lit routes (AMEX, BAT, EDGX and many more), dark pools (Credit Swiss, JP Morgan, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Nigh and Coda), and to the smartest smart routes which are aggressive liquidity seekers.
