European Equities – Market Microstructure Survey Q2 2020Richard Hills
Our Comprehensive Review of Market Volumes, Fragmentation and Other Topics.
by Richard Hills, big xyt
The strange times continue. While Q1 broke all the records, Q2 came up with a few surprises. The biggest MSCI rebalance in history pushed the figures up for May, thanks to some major index re-weightings. Volatility returned in June to create the 3rd biggest month since MiFID2 began. In our quarterly review we look at the patterns of volumes and market share and this time we take a closer look inside the box of Systematic Internalisation.

About the Liquidity Cockpit
At big-xyt we take great pride in providing solutions to the complex challenges of data analysis. Navigating in fragmented markets remains a challenge for all participants. We recognise that the investing community needs and expects continued innovation as the volume of data and related complexity continues to increase.
Our Liquidity Cockpit is now recognised as an essential independent tool for exchanges, Sell-side and increasingly Buy-side market participants. Data quality is a key component, as is a robust process for normalisation so that like-for-like comparisons and trends over time have relevance. However, our clients most value a choice of flexible delivery methods which can be via interactive dashboard or direct access to underlying data and analysis through CSV, API or other appropriate mechanism.
