Re: Good to see
That is a good question. Liqudity challenges in equities are a function of the fragmentation between 12 exchanges and dark pools in addition to algorithms following each other. I think it's the equity market structure that's making it challenging to find liquidity. Then there are cases of ephemeral quotes - bids an offers that are posted and within milcroseconds, are canceled. A trader may see that 35,000 shares are offered at a certain price, but is only able to buy 12,000 shares. Yes, there are liquidity problems despite the increase in volumes.
