Why Auction on Demand
A MiFID II Compatible Solution
About the Service
Periodic Auctions - On demand
In the Auction on Demand order book, a seller or buyer may place an order at any time, entering it into a periodic auction. Auction on Demand is active throughout the day when the lit book is in continuous trading and is triggered on demand, when matching orders are found. When a matching bid or offer comes in, an auction uncross is triggered, and price and volume are made public.
The service comes with a number of safety features, including randomization, speed bump and minimum execution size.

Auctions are triggered on demand by crossing orders. The duration of the auction is 25 ms fixed and a random 0-75 ms, meaning the auction will last for maximum 100 ms. The auction will uncross at the price where most volume can be traded.
