Autex Block Data ranks brokers based on trading activity by volume or by value traded in selected stocks, markets or industries, or by user-defined custom portfolios. You can view detailed trading activity of each broker in the Autex community. Broker Dealers can post trade advertisements detailing key information including the size, market, direction, and unit price. They can also post advertised trades to market their trading activity and solicit client interest.
Buy-side institutions use Advertised Trades alongside Pre-trade Indications of Interest to gauge the strength of each broker's offering.
The system automatically ranks each firm based on the previous day's advertised trades.
