The NYSE Closing Auction remains the largest equity liquidity event, trading on average more than $18bn per day1. We have previously studied Closing Auction liquidity, participation, and price dislocation, and now focus on the price impact of auction order submission. We find that the market absorbs most large orders with little impact to the current stock price, especially on standard (i.e., non-rebalance) trading days.
We assess market impact of auction orders by examining the reference price and auction quantities from the auction imbalance data. Key data elements:

2023 was an exceptional year for global equity ETPs. Until the fourth quarter, profits were limited generally to a few tech companies, but gains broadened in Q4. We review fund flows, returns and activity in multiple equity ETP categories.
Actively managed ETPs now account for 1/3 of all U.S. ETP listings, accounting for 6.5% of AUM and 22.5% of fund flows in 2023. Futures-based Crypto ETP activity grew as the year progressed, likely in anticipation of the 11-Jan-2024 launch of cash bitcoin ETPs.
U.S.- listed ETP AUM continued to grow, with NYSE Group markets leading the way. Equities remain the largest asset class, but fixed income products gained ground.
