Indication of interest & trade adverts
Thomson Reuters Autex
Streamline your workflow and improve executions with Autex Indication of Interest (IOI) and Trade Advertisements, giving you a broad view of broker liquidity.
Thomson Reuters Autex is a network that allows brokers to advertise equities liquidity (either pre-trade or post-trade) to their buy-side clients. Buy-side traders, in turn, use these messages as a core part of their strategy for discovering liquidity they need to complete trades.
The building blocks of the Autex suite of products are Indication of Interest (IOI) and Trade Advertisements messages.
The Autex applications allow buy-side traders to:
- view brokers' IOIs in real-time – approximately 4.5 million messages per day, including Supers, Generals, and approximately 1,000,000 Naturals
- view Trade Advertisements by broker, symbol groups and/or sectors
- access real-time and historic Trade Advertisements and IOIs
- view intra-day broker rankings by volume traded in a given symbol.
The Thomson Reuters Autex Client Portal
The Thomson Reuters Autex Client Portal is available to all Autex clients. It allows users to search for other clients subscribed to the Autex network and download client directory files to support their Autex IOI and Advertised Trade messaging needs.
