About Our Omega ATS Fees
Here is some additional detail about our fee model and all fees charged by Tradelogiq Markets Inc. for the Omega ATS marketplace, including any additional parties to whom services have been directly or indirectly outsourced, including, but not limited to, fees relating to connecting to the market or facility, access, data, regulation (if applicable), trading, routing, and co-location, how we set those fees and any fee rebates or discounts and how we determine these.
Fee and Commission Tracking For the Omega ATS
In real time, in conjunction with the execution of each share the Omega ATS reports the per share rate using the standard fix tags 12 (commission) and 13 (commission type). Following each execution participants receive the quantity, fee level and the active or passive status of each fill. This information enables vendors to calculate and display their clients’ fees in real time on a per trade and per share basis.
In order to simplify reconciliation and billing, Tradelogiq prepares for activity on the Omega ATS and provides a monthly invoice, blotter and statement.
This monthly information package allows all Participants to reconcile activity on all shares traded at all levels. All billing information is routed to participants and can be broken down by each firm; as a whole; by individual trading ID; by tier; by share at each tier; and by active versus passive. The trade blotter and trader summary is submitted as an excel file to allow subscribers to manipulate the information to compare it with their internal systems.
ALL EQUITY VOLUME INCLUDING ETF VOLUME traded on our Omega ATS will be applied to the Monthly Total Volume for the calculation of tier levels for the pricing of listed securities and listed exchange traded funds.
For the Omega ATS, Tradelogiq pays a capped rebate of CDN$25,000 for equity shares crossed on the Omega ATS in a given month. A rebate of CDN$0.000125/Share will be paid to participants for monthly participant-crossed total equity volume of less than or equal to 200,000,000 shares.
For monthly participant-crossed total equity volume greater than 200,000,000 shares, the total pool of CDN$25,000 will be distributed on a prorated basis.
For months with participant-crossed total equity volume greater than 200,000,000 shares, the total pool of CDN$25,000 will be distributed on a prorated basis.
Monthly crossed volume only applies to Intentional Crosses* and Internal Crosses* as defined by UMIR. All crosses on the Omega ATS are bypass, thus Internal Crosses are marked as Bypass Internal Crosses. Cross volume will not be double counted, and will be counted as just one side of a cross.
*“intentional cross” means a trade resulting from the entry by a Participant or Access Person of both the order to purchase and the order to sell a security, but does not include a trade in which the Participant has entered one of the orders as a jitney order.
“Internal cross” means an intentional cross between two accounts which are managed by a single firm acting as a portfolio manager with discretionary authority to manage the investment portfolio granted by each of the holders of the accounts and includes a trade in respect of which the Participant or Access Person is acting as a portfolio manager in authorizing the trade between the two accounts.
Broker Preference Orders
The Omega ATS matches attributed visible liquidity orders originating from the same broker at the best bid or offer, superseding the time at which other broker’s orders are entered. Omega ATS matches attributed hidden orders originating from the same broker at the best bid or offer, superseding the time at which other brokers’ hidden orders are entered. All visible orders retain priority to hidden orders at the best bid or offer.
All orders executed though Broker Preference will have no fee either passive or active.
Exchange Traded funds are treated as all other equity crosses.
Unlisted and Listed Debt
For unlisted debt instrument transactions (corps, governments, etc.), a 0.05 per $ 1,000.00 face value is charged to the “active” (“take”) side. No charge is applied to the passive side.
For listed debenture transactions, $ 0.095 per $1,000 face value is charged to the “active” (“take”) side. A rebate of 0.085 per $ 1,000 face is paid to the passive liquidity provider.
No fee is charged for orders placed in the Omega ATS that do not execute.
