  • Publication number: 20220005119
    Abstract: A derived order gives a participant simultaneous access to liquidity across multiple books, destinations, or marketplaces. The derived order can be placed and anchored in one trading venue and simultaneously replicated in another trading venue. A participant can place the derived order in the lit book as an anchor book and replicate the order in the hybrid book and/or the dark book, or alternatively, the participant can place the derived order in the hybrid book as an anchor book and replicate the order in the dark book. A trading engine can be configured to replicate an order in different books and guarantee that each order is only executed once. When an order is replicated, the trading engine can check the stored record to see where the order was placed, and then adjust or cancel an order in one book when it is being fulfilled in a different book.
