Trading and Execution

Celadon is committed to providing high-quality trade executions and timely settlement services to our institutional clients in the U.S. and abroad. We seek to enter and exit each client’s position at their target price and provide price improvement where possible with minimal market impact. Depending on your specific needs, we can execute your order as agent, principal, or riskless principal. Our advanced technology infrastructure supports full connectivity to all principal market centers utilizing various complex order types and access to trading algorithms where required or requested. Because we operate on a broker-neutral platform, Celadon is able to route orders based solely on your best interests.

Whether you are using our market maker or agency capabilities, our seasoned traders – each with more than two decades of market experience – help clients navigate through often turbulent markets. We work closely with our clients throughout the trading day to keep them abreast of key market opportunities and challenges.

Our comprehensive line-up of execution services, including block trading, options, ETF trading services, fixed income, algorithms and direct electronic access, helps you devise and implement your investing and hedging strategies.
All desks may be contacted by phone, IM, or FIX connection.

Market Maker Desk
As a market maker in NMS securities, Celadon focuses on providing broker dealers and other financial institutions with access to liquidity, increasing efficiency and driving down trading costs. We are approved to make markets in 2000 stocks including NMS equities, NASDAQ small caps, NYSE listed securities, and OTCBBs. We execute transactions across all principal exchanges, crossing networks, and other liquidity sources.

Agency Desk
Our agency desk provides accurate, anonymous, and efficient execution in domestic or foreign equities, options, fixed income securities, and ETF’s. We take great professional pride in ensuring timely fills and reporting accuracy. For most orders, we use state-of-the-art electronic order routing that delivers virtually immediate execution.

Equities. With access to all major domestic and foreign exchanges, ECN’s and liquidity pools, Celadon is equipped to handle large-quantity orders quickly and efficiently. Our ability to execute block orders is comparable to that of the bulge-bracket firms but we do so with a level of personalized service that is increasingly rare on Wall Street.

Options. While the investment professionals at Celadon have substantial experience with every asset class, we have a particular expertise in options trading. Our most senior options traders have almost 50 years of combined option experience, and are highly respected within the industry as “trader’s traders.” We are fluent in complex options strategies and can efficiently execute option transactions that require special attention. Our extensive experience with listed and OTC options allows us to identify actionable trading and arbitrage opportunities.

Fixed Income Desk
The fixed income desk handles both buy and sell orders in corporate bonds, agencies, Treasuries, municipals, and asset-backed securities for our institutional and high net-worth clients, as well as for other broker-dealers who turn to Celadon for our expertise.
