Clients can also benefit from the liquidity available in dark pools, where they may benefit from price improvements and mid-point matching. These are orders not displayed on the lit books but are available for you to trade against. Dark liquidity pools are often used by institutional investors who do not wish to reveal the price, size and origin of their orders.
This means that as well as the liquidity visible on the lit order books, trading share CFDs with IG or share dealing with IG gives you unparalleled access to the non-displayed liquidity found in the dark pools. This means you can take advantage of even greater levels of liquidity, increasing the likelihood of your orders being filled and the potential for better prices.
