In September 2016 the average trade size for POSIT Alert rose to its highest level since 2009. On a sequential basis, U.S. consolidated market share increased modestly for the second consecutive month in September 2016, due in part to an increase in volume from lower-priced market-on-close (MOC) orders associated with portfolio rebalancing. This shift significantly reduced the overall average revenue per share in September 2016 as compared to the second quarter of 2016.

International Trading Activity

The average daily trading commissions in September 2016 in ITG’s Canadian, European and Asia Pacific businesses were down approximately 9% in U.S. dollar terms on a combined basis as compared to the second quarter of 2016.

These statistics are preliminary and may be revised in subsequent updates and public filings. U.S. volume statistics are posted on the investor relations section of ITG’s website, investor.itg.com and are available via a downloadable spreadsheet file.
