Independent Trading Group: Dedicated to Professional Trading

Canada’s only brokerage firm dedicated specifically to professional trading

Most listed stocks in Canada are illiquid and can trade on up to 15 different venues. This can make it difficult to access liquidity as pricing could be erratic as buyers and sellers enter the marketplace with different prices at different times. This is where an Issuer Designated Market Maker or IDMM comes in.

What Exactly is an IDMM?

An IDMM’s job is to manage the price of the stock by interacting with buyers and sellers. The IDMM adds orders to the market, enhancing the orders placed by natural buyers and sellers. This improves the depth of the quote.
