Turquoise trading interface
The interface provides trading access to the securities market based on MTF Turquoise platform, a part of LSE Group.
- Upload of reference data from a directory.
Forwarding and cancellation of orders as well as transmission of trading data in the following modes:
Turquoise Integrated Order Book (Lit) — a double auction mode with standard execution of orders based on ‘visible quotes’.
Turquoise Dark Midpoint Order Book (Dark Pool) — a mode, where orders are sent to ‘invisible quotes’ and executed at the same price calculated as an average value between bid and offer. (The mode features the service — Turquoise Block Discovery™ for the matching of undisclosed Block Indications and the innovative mechanism — Turquoise Uncross™ that provides randomized uncrossings which are ideal for larger and less time sensitive of passive orders).
