Market Microstructure

Orders on the LGO spot exchange are executed by batch, in less than a second. Within a batch, orders are executed on a price-time priority.

This has 2 impacts for LGO clients:

  • The order book gets updated periodically rather than on an order by order basis
  • Regardless of their infrastructure, clients have access to the same latency

Rather than being updated with every trade, the LGO order book is updated by batch. High, medium and low-frequency traders have access to the same information feedback regardless of their technical infrastructure. This is the basis of a global market, with fair and direct market access for all types of investors.
