How it works

The interaction between the QDM order book with pre-trade transparency and the QOD without pre-trade transparency can result in improved executions. Following graph explains the how trading participants can interact with ETF QOD Europe in four simple steps:

  1. Place a Quote Request into QOD – that will start the “call period”;
  2. Make the liquidity providers receive a Quote Request and are prompted to submit ‘buy’ and ‘sell’ quotes;
  3. Submit “buy” or “sell” quote with the quantity defined by the participant in the Quote Request.
  4. Thanks to the interoberable CCP model by SIX, Clearing and Settlement occurs automatically into local CSDs.
