Morgan Stanley is now crossing on average over 100 million shares per day in its dark liquidity pool, MS POOL.

MS POOL is a dark liquidity pool that enhances crossing and price improvement by combining many sources of order flow into one aggregated pool of liquidity. Unlike many other dark pools operating in the United States, MS POOL does not solicit order flow from external parties by leaking information regarding current client order flow.

“We are pleased to offer a dark pool that is truly dark and that crosses natural liquidity,” says Andrew Silverman, managing director and co-head, Electronic Trading, Morgan Stanley.

“This is a huge milestone for us and shows that our message regarding information leakage has really resonated with our current and potential clients who value anonymity and the confidentiality of their order information.”
