Goldman Sachs Principal Transactions Update: 826 Million Shares

Tyler Durden's picture

The week ended August 7 indicated that Goldman's PT on the NYSE is regaining its dominance after in the prior week it came perilously close to being overtaken by Morgan Stanley (not so much in principal as in agency trading). In the last week 800 million prgram traded shares transacted each day, 26.9% of total buy-sell volume. Unfortunately the NYSE has removed how this compares on an average basis to a 52 week trailing average which last we checked was around 25%.

And here is the prior week's action. Is Morgan Stanley just starting to realize the potential bonanza that PT is, especially in the HFT realm?
