When you enter an order via our Trading Platform, your order will be sent to a place where other market participants can see your order and take the other side of the trade if desired. This is known as a 'place of execution' or a 'trading venue'. In the financial world, there are many such venues. The more well known venues are generally the main segments of major exchanges such as Euronext Amsterdam or the London Stock Exchange. However, these are not the only venues where financial instruments are traded. Financial instruments can also be traded on alternative trading venues such as the BATS, Chi-X or IEX markets, between individual market makers, or 'Over the Counter' (OTC).
You can find a list of all trading venues that we rely on to provide the best execution of your orders here.
