The website provides access to annotated visual analysis of the fragmented European equity trading landscape leading up to and during 2018.

The independent provider of high-volume, smart data and analytics capabilities has decided to create the new site, which leverages its market structure analysis product Liquidity Cockpit, in response to multiple client requests.

Mark Montgomery, Head of Strategy and Business Development at big xyt, commented:

“Following the interest we received from our Twelve Days of Trading series, we have created a new environment telling the story of 2018 including the impact of MiFID II and emerging trends.” Adding, “Allowing for weekends and holidays, there are approximately 250 trading days each calendar year. Looking at a single day in isolation is only one page in a story. It is only when we combine the pages and chapters that the full narrative emerges.”

Robin Mess, Chief Executive Officer at big xyt, said:

“Celebrating our 5th year as an independent provider of analytics, we take great pride in providing solutions to the complex challenges of data analysis. Navigating in fragmented markets remains a challenge for all participants.” He continued “We recognize that the investing community needs information analysis, in an easily digested format, to support a rapidly growing number of use cases, and expects continued innovation as the volume of data and related complexity continues to increase.”

The website provides access to an analysis of the evolving equity market structure story during 2018 and users can access multiple views within a range of Liquidity Cockpit dashboards that will initially focus on Liquidity Trends. Soon, the metrics will be extended to include Block Trading Volumes, Systematic Internalisers, Impact of Double Volume Caps, Equity Spreads and ETF Spreads.
