    Nordic@Mid

    Efficient Dark Pool Trading at Mid-Price

    Efficient Matching of Non-Displayed Orders

    Nordic@Mid offers mid-point matching for reduced market impact costs - as well as a price advantage.

    Nordic@Mid offers automatic execution of non-displayed orders at the central order book mid-price as well as overall price improvement. It can also be used to avoid market impact for large orders.

    • All orders are non-displayed to not expose larger trading interests.
    • Matching at mid-point offers a price improvement for both seller and buyer.
    • Orders are executed only against other Nordic@Mid orders, separately from the central order book.
    • No minimum order size.
    • Automatic rejection of orders that do not meet the Large in Scale criteria in case of active Double Volume Caps (information on caped symbols can be found in IT-notices by searching here for “regulatory suspensions related to double volume cap mechanism”).
    • Minimum acceptable quantity (MAQ) protection to avoid partial executions. 
    • Limit price protection is supported as price cap/floor.
    • Order matching priority: Participant-Size-Time.
    • Dark-Lit Sweep on OUCH and FIX for an atomic sweep of Nordic@Mid before hitting the Lit book with your IOC order.
