Dttw Communications

March 11, 2020

Dear Manager,

Since the launch and promotion of the TSX DRK dark pool last summer, Select Vantage has become a major contributor to the venue. TSX DRK has been building momentum in the dark space month after month, with continued growth in ADV and market share.

February was their strongest month yet, and March is shaping up to build on those successes even more.

Select Vantage has been a major contributor to DRK by being an early implementer and continuous user of their SDL order type.

  • Monday, March 9, 2020, had a record high daily volume at 45,994,500 shares traded with 32% of dark trading taking place on TSX DRK (MATCHNOW 50%, CXD 15%)
  • Overall, February 2020 reached record monthly high ADV at 15,679,111 shares traded
  • Select Vantage has seen a huge jump in march with the SDL active order type, hitting 892,600 in volume
