Turbos are tradable on Spectrum Markets and issued by Raydius: these are leveraged products whose value is based on the price of an underlying asset which allow you to invest on upside and downside trends. They are open ended and only mature if the knock-out barrier is reached or surpassed.
The price of this product tracks the movement of the underlying on an almost one-to-one basis (adjusted to the multiplier), with a leverage effect. What’s more, outside traditional market hours the knockout level cannot be triggered, meaning greater control and opportunity in trading.

Raydius products are available on hundreds of underlyings, including Indices, FX, Commodities, Equities, Cryptocurrencies.

What is a Multilateral Trading Facility (MTF)

A Multilateral Trading Facility (MTF) is an alternative trading venue where financial instruments are exchanged.
Brokers, market makers, banks, hedge funds and asset managers can connect to MTFs directly, becoming "members". MTFs are described as "multilateral" because they have multiple members and users that are capable of interacting with each other to set prices.

MTFs operate under the European Union's Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II), which stipulates that financial instruments traded via an MTF must be exchanged on a "non-discretionary basis". This means that contracts between buyers and sellers must be formed according to a set of transparent rules that do not discriminate between members or their clients.

MTFs offer a level playing field for all market participants. If a user wants to buy an instrument at a certain price, they’ll be able to do so if a corresponding sell interest is available in the system with sufficient liquidity at the same time. Multilateral trading facilities are independent of any buying and selling interests, and simply connect the two to execute trades.

How does an MTF works

A Multilateral Trading Facility works according to a published rulebook, which sets out how and when trades will be executed. They are normally underpinned by software that follows the given rulebook and matches buyers and sellers according to the orders and quotes that are entered into the system.

Multilateral trading facilities are also required to provide pre- and post-trade transparency. The volume available at each spread is visible at all times, enabling the user to find the best possible price before they place an order. Post-trade, users can see the time, price and volume of all trading activity on the MTF. These details can be downloaded for any time period.
