International Securities Exchange launches post trade allocation functionality for stock leg of complex options orders
The International Securities Exchange is now using ConvergEx Group technology to implement post-trade allocation functionality for the stock leg of tied-to-stock options orders. The new functionality can be applied to orders that are entered into ISE's complex order book through proprietary, FIX or PrecISE (ISE’s trading system) connections. Once a tied-to-stock options order has been executed, members will be able to change clearing instructions in PrecISE or split the stock component among multiple parties for clearing. ISE plans to roll out this new post trade allocation functionality as part of the exchange's upcoming migration to its new options trading system. ISE already supports fully-electronic post trade allocation for the options legs of all order types through all connections.Notice: Undefined variable: indexpage in /home/wfe/public_html/focus/2011-01/footer.php on line 4
