This Market Maker Has Had Only One Losing Day On Record
Virtu Financial Inc (NASDAQ: VIRT) shares are climbing throughout the morning following the broad market selloff at the open.
Automated trading has been steadily declining on the NYSE as Payment For Order Flow (PFOF) continues to route trades away from established market centers and into Alternative Display Facilities. Virtu has certainly benefited from this flow and perhaps even the steady expansion of the drift experienced by exchange clocks.
