NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 10, 2007--Investment Technology Group, Inc. (NYSE: ITG), a leading provider of technology-based trading services and transaction research, today announced that December 2006 U.S. trading volume was 3.4 billion shares and average daily volume (ADV) was 171 million shares. This compares to 2.6 billion shares and ADV of 123 million shares in December 2005 and 3.7 billion shares and ADV of 175 million shares in November 2006.

There were 20 trading days in December 2006, compared to 21 trading days in December 2005 and in November 2006.

"ITG's volumes remained strong in December, due primarily to year end direct access business. This growth in direct access was present throughout the quarter and will result in an approximately five percent rate card decline for the quarter," said Howard Naphtali, Chief Financial Officer at ITG. "We continue to see strong momentum in our trading volumes as we enter 2007. In addition, our European revenues were higher than initially expected for the quarter."

Monthly volume statistics reflect commission-generating U.S. volume. These statistics are preliminary and may be revised in subsequent updates and public filings. Volume statistics are posted on ITG's website,, and are available via a downloadable spreadsheet file.
