Dear Manager,

We are happy to announce that effective Monday, March 9, 2020, traders will have access to a new destination specifically designed to get dark liquidity from conditional orders.

What are conditional orders?

A conditional order is an instruction offered by some dark pools, where the participant sending the order intends to execute his order flow on a conditional basis.

When there is a potential match for a conditional order, the participant sending the order will get a message giving them the opportunity to accept or reject the match in the form of a Firm-Up response.

Conditional orders are a new way for firms to send large orders to multiple dark pools at the same time, giving them the opportunity to accept or reject a trade before it happens.

In the last couple of years, there has been a huge increase in the amount of volume that gets traded through conditional orders. As a result, we believe this order type will be a great tool for your traders.

The new Conditional Liquidity Seeker in PPro8 will sweep multiple dark venues that provide the conditional order match service for liquidity.


  • Available on the NASDAQ, NYSE, and NYSE American (AMEX) markets

  • This destination will sweep the following venues for conditional order liquidities:

    • AQUA Conditional

    • Bank of America Conditional

    • BARCLAYS Conditional

Please Note: DTTW™ will always accept a Firm-Up message from the broker, so there is no need for further interaction from the trader.
