Goldman Sachs Bets on Canadian Dark Liquidity

Traders in the Canadian markets can expect a bit more fragmentation as Goldman Sachs Electronic Trading (GSET) launches its Sigma X Canada dark liquidity pool for Toronto Stock Exchange-listed issues.

"The growth potential of the Canadian equity market is significant," says Todd Lopez, managing director and co-head of Americas sales, Goldman Sachs Electronic Trading. "We believe unique, alternative pools of liquidity will continue to play an important role in the Canadian market's development."

The new matching engine is located in a local third-party Toronto data center and accessible by FIX messaging connections or a variety of order management and execution management system providers, according to firm officials.

This latest deployment of the Sigma X platform complements GSET's other dark liquidity offering available in the US, Europe and Asia, Adam Mazur, managing director and co-head of business development, Goldman Sachs Electronic Trading.
