The lawsuit asserts that Barclays and certain of its officers and directors failed to disclose material adverse facts regarding the Company's operation of its dark pool. According to the complaint, Defendants misstated and/or failed to disclose that:: (i) Barclays engaged in a systematic pattern of fraud and deceit by using its dark pool to favor high-frequency traders ("HFT") over its other clients; (ii) the pools were promoted as offering investors protection from predatory traders, while Barclays instead courted HFT firms by charging them lower rates; (iii) Barclays falsely understated the percentage of aggressive HFT activity in its dark pool; (iv) Barclays failed to provide monitoring services it promised to investors which would protect the dark pool from aggressive, predatory HFTs; and (v) Barclays routed a disproportionately high percentage of client orders to its own dark pool while falsely representing that it routed client orders in a manner that did not favor Barclays LX. The lawsuit claims that when these adverse facts entered the market the price of Barclays stock dropped, damaging investors.
