Order protection

Goldman Sachs SIGMA X crossing network is
designed to be 100% anonymous. Counterparty information will never be displayed
or revealed. To prevent gaming, the client can set a minimum execution quantity
on their orders, which would limit them to crossing with orders they consider


Goldman Sachs ET has a diverse client base
including broker/dealers, institutions and hedge funds. In Asia, SIGMA X dark
liquidity is available in Australia and Japan.

Japan is in the process of being upgraded, and will support limit, limit IOC
and relative price orders (e.g., mid-or-better, peg-bid, peg-ask). SIGMA X
Australia is only accessible via algorithm, and only crosses at the mid.
