On April 25th, OpenDoor launched an innovative trading platform specifically designed to reliquify off-the-run Treasuries and TIPS. The platform is all-to-all, session-based and anonymous. OpenDoor offers free access to the browser-based platform, and the blind platform ensures zero information leakage. The combination of these features offers traders and fiduciaries the perfect venue to enforce best execution protocols. In order to preserve existing dealer relationships as well as the post trade process, the end-user chooses the dealer it wishes to face for settlement and clearing. While dealers are encouraged to trade on the platform for their proprietary desks, their primary role is as your clearing agent.
