Investment Technology Group Introduces Dark Algorithm in Canada



    TORONTO, October 11 /CNW/ - Investment Technology Group, Inc. (NYSE:  
ITG), a leading provider of technology-based equity trading services and
transaction research, today announced that the ITG Dark Algorithm is now
available for Canadian equities. The ITG Dark Algorithm provides Canadian
dealers and clients trading Canadian stocks with access to Canadian dark
liquidity pools and those trading interlisted stocks with access to both US
and Canadian dark pools without information leakage.

    A client looking to trade large blocks of stock can use the ITG Dark
Algorithm to aggregate multiple alternative liquidity destinations in Canada
and the US, including MATCH Now(SM). Once clients decide which liquidity pools
they want to access, the ITG Dark Algorithm will route their orders,
maximizing executions at the midpoint or better and simplifying the execution
process. In addition, shares sent to the ITG Dark Algorithm are never
displayed in the market.

    "The introduction of the ITG Dark Algorithm for Canadian equities
reflects the ongoing evolution of electronic trading in the Canadian
marketplace," said Nick Thadaney, CEO of ITG Canada Corp. "ITG is focused on
providing clients with sophisticated tools to help them navigate the Canadian
and US marketplaces seamlessly and trade more efficiently."

    The ITG Dark Algorithm in Canada, like the US version, allows users to
dynamically adjust their level of participation, depending on their degree of
urgency. In addition, clients can seamlessly route to ITG's POSIT suite in the
US.
