Fourth market

Fourth market trading is direct institution-to-institution trading without using the service of broker-dealers. Trades are usually done in blocks. It is impossible to estimate the volume of fourth market activity because trades are not subject to reporting requirements. Studies have suggested that several million shares are traded per day and trading commissions can be avoided.[1][2]
