Bold Predictions

In an interview one year ago, Robert Gasser-then CEO of NYFIX-told Traders Magazine that 2006 would be the year of the dark pool. "This year [2005] is the year of the algorithm, but 2006 will be the year of the dark book," said Gasser, who has since taken the reins as CEO of ITG. Boy, was he right! The evolution of the dark pool has certainly been a recurring theme this year. In fact, it seems Traders Magazine has written a story on this topic just about every month since Gasser's prediction. And this issue is no exception.
