Control your execution

BARX offers a wide range of execution channels and order types to provide you with seamless and efficient access to deep liquidity.

Execution channels

BARX offers you the choice, to trade through manual or electronic risk transfer, plus our Gator hybrid agency model.

On the Order Entry screen you can now use the radio buttons indicating Manual, PowerFill, or BARX Gator™ execution to choose your 'execution channel'. You can configure your default execution type in the Preferences Screen.

  • Manual - Route the order to Barclays traders for manual execution
  • BARX PowerFill - Use the anonymous algorithmic execution engine to fill your orders with no brokerage fees
  • BARX Gator - Use the hybrid execution model which brings together external market liquidity as well as BARX PowerFill orders and Barclays own liquidity
