Yesterday, despite near record levels in the volatility index (VIX), Millennium matched approximately 110 million shares across 3,126 symbols.
"What we've seen over the past couple days marks a compelling shift, dispelling the previous notion that traders shy away from executing in dark pools during times of high volatility," said C. Thomas Richardson, Global Head of Transaction Services for NYFIX. "Millennium's proven ability to outperform other execution venues and save as much as 21 basis points per share has made it a venue where traders know they can go for best execution, regardless of market conditions."

:) We should see what happens with the Portal Alliance and Liquidnet. My guess is that we shall see soon some very interesting developments and a lot of talk on TV about "dark" revelations.
