I want to find out more about a problem I've seen with trading on so-called "anonymous platforms". It seems there is a discrepancy between what some people are calling anonymous and what others are calling anonymous. Naturally, the customers I trade against would like to know who I am and learn my trading patterns, P/L my trades so that they can modify their feeds or steal my models, etc. But I recently found out that Lava have been alerting the banks every time I execute an order by sending them a unique identifier that has been assigned to me whenever I trade. They're not giving my actual name, but they are providing my Customer ID, and this makes me wonder how they might be able to use this to cheat me. Are all platforms like this or is there such thing as true anonymity?
