Liquidnet Broadens International Access to Canadian Equities with Expansion of Next Gen Algo Suite

Liquidnet, the global institutional trading network, today announced the full rollout of its Next Gen algo suite in Canada further enhancing access to block liquidity in the region.

The Next Gen algorithmic suite includes Liquidnet’s flagship liquidity-seeking algo, Liquidnet Dark, which looks for liquidity in Liquidnet and other dark venues. New additions for Canada include Liquidnet Barracuda, designed to simultaneously seek a large block in Liquidnet while opportunistically searching for available liquidity across external venues, and Liquidnet Sweep-Then-Post, designed to quickly and aggressively take available liquidity in order to strike tactically at attractive price levels or get small orders done.
