TORONTO, Nov. 14 /CNW/ - CanDeal is pleased to report a 218% increase in
the number of trades executed on its Canadian Money Market (CAMM) trading
platform in the second half of its fiscal year, ended October 31, 2007. "This
rapid growth of trades is consistent with the U.S. and European experience and
the widespread adoption of online trading in money markets, globally. All of
the leading dealers in the Canadian money market participate on CanDeal," says
Shirley Gallant, Managing Director for CanDeal.

institutional investors and treasury managers can sort, filter and view
multiple dealer offerings of Canadian money market instruments (BA's, BDN's,

solicit firm offerings from multiple dealers. Using a single-click, clients
can trade with one or more dealers to create a diversified position. CAMM-RFQ
is available for Banker's Acceptances, Bank Deposit Notes and Term Deposits.
CanDeal creates a permanent and retrievable compliance archive of every
transaction, which details all communications between client and dealer during
the trade cycle; including prevailing market levels at the time of the trade
and subsequent trade allocations or modifications.
