what is the Z exchange?

  1. I see trades on the tape that say Z as the exchange.

    Usually I see Nasdaq Third Market,Listed stocks,NYSE,Boston etc..

    but Z is new to me. Where is this?
  2. futures Z?
  3. Equity markets.
  4. Exchange "Z" (or M if you see them) Represent the pooled trades from a Dark Pool. Usually they are priced at GSBO prices (GSBO DP pricing typically) and are outside NBBO transactions.

    Most trading platforms do not show that. What platform are you using?
