Are former Instinet subscribers happy with INET?

    Is anyone hearing anything from institutions and other former Instinet subscribers about how they are doing with INET? There are a number of things that INET doesn't do that Instinet did, and some things that INET does that Instinet didn't. Or have they really not moved at all, and are using other (new) means of getting their orders filled?

    From the web site, it seems that Instinet still has many products that they offer, but it's unclear where subscribers orders that add liquidity reside, and exactly how/where/when it takes liquidity from other sources (like INET). I know some of it goes to the different crossing sessions, but that's always been there. Have they essentially gone back to having a "hidden" instiutional marketplace, like they used to have before they allowed all the retail connections?

    In particular, I'm interested in the listed marketplace.
  2. but do have a question ....

    it used to be that Instinet provided additional execution services for US equities from 3 am - 7 am and I am now unable to
    use them if needed during these hours

    perhaps its still being done but on a subscriber only basis?
  3. I'm also interested.............
