NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 02/03/14 -- BIDS Trading, the alternative trading system (ATS) designed to increase competition and liquidity in the U.S. equity block trading market, today announced record block trading volumes for the month of January. Total volume in BIDS averaged more than 86 million shares per day in January. Block trade volume accounted for more than 32 million shares, which was up 88% year over year.
Additionally, in 2013, the number of prints that were greater than 10% ADV was up 25% over the previous year. On the record numbers, Tim Mahoney, CEO of BIDS Trading, offered, "We are pleased with the growth in overall volume and, more importantly, block liquidity in our dark pool. We have focused a great deal of our efforts on improving order interaction and messaging to better facilitate block trades. The healthy mix of buy-side flow and algorithmic flow from the sell-side is leading to greater liquidity, more trading opportunities, and increased market share."
BIDS Trading allows market participants to trade large blocks of equities without revealing their order. Information disclosure is controlled by the trader via customizable trading tools: traders set their minimum block size to help protect their order and they can filter out counterparties based on past trading behavior.
