Behind the Trade

A video series on the trading dynamics and nuances we see on the Investors Exchange every day.

We’re taking on conventional wisdom and digging in to big questions about liquidity, participation, impact, and the technology driving IEX.

Episode 1:

Rest your next order on IEX, the U.S. equities exchange setting a new standard for performance.
