  • Anonymous quotes can be forwarded by a FIX protocol.

Negotiated Deal Order Submission and Trade Execution

A negotiated deal order is sent to a specified service participant who in turn can:

  • accept the incoming order by sending a counter order,

The trades can be executed in the ‘NDM trades with CCP’ trading mode of the Moscow Exchange.
