Seeing this story about the impact that MarkitBOAT is having upon traditional data reporting, I received a heads-up from Chi-x, the alternative exchange launched by Instinet in April last year, that they traded 7% of equity volumes of the LSE yesterday.
trading stats show that Chi-x’s number of trades were 2,401,856, up
121%; share volume was 1,850,602,948, up 177%; and turnover was
€34,614,579,690 , up 71%.
Not bad for a one year old exchange who enjoy blowing their own trumpet.
