TABB Group Issues First in Series of Quarterly US Equity Volume Market Metrics Reports

Encouraged by SEC Chair Mary Jo White’s 13 directives to enhance US equity market structure through “clear-eyed, unbiased, fact-based assessments,” TABB Group has issued the first in a series of comprehensive, quarterly US equity volume market metrics.

According to senior research analyst Sayena Mostowfi, who initiated the series and authors the report, “US Equity Market Structure: Q1-2014 Market Metrics,” TABB combined data from the SEC market structure website, Rule 605 and 606 disclosure documents, self-reported dark pool volumes and SIP data to present a comprehensive breakdown of US equity volume.

“We believe that dark volume consists of retail wholesalers, dark ATSs, hidden exchange and Single-Dealer Platforms (SDPs),” says Mostowfi, who defines ‘dark pools’ as dark ATSs and SDPs. In Q1-2014, dark volume and dark pools accounted for 43.6% and 17.2% of industry shares respectively. Dark pool volume consisted of 84.3% dark ATS and 15.7 SDPs. In the same time period, she says, lit exchange and lit ATS accounted for 56.4% of industry volume.
