A Single Connection for Pan-European Trading and Services
Bats Europe is a comprehensive solution to gain access to 15 major European markets, more than 3,600 securities, multiple pools of liquidity at attractive price points, and services for each stage of trading – all through one network connection.
The ONE Connection solution provides access to the Bats order books, routing to other pan-European market centre order books, clearing and settlement, trade reporting services and pan-European market data.
How to Trade
There are four categories of order types on our lit order books: visible order types, interbook order types, hidden order types and peg order types. The dark order books have two order types: midpoint peg orders and minimum acceptable quantity.
Bats also offers a pan-European smart order routing (SOR) service, Bats Select, to enable trading participants to access the Bats order books, as well as liquidity at European exchanges, MTFs and dark pools, with a single order.
Bats Select provides more choice for deploying trading strategies, whilst minimising market access complexities and costs of meeting best execution criteria in today’s fragmented European equities market.
Trading, supporting trading-related features and order routing are covered in this section. Find information about the remaining elements of the ONE Connection in the Listings, Market Data, Trade Reporting and Clearing and Settlement sections.
