JERSEY CITY, New Jersey, November 30, 2010 - Knight Capital Group, Inc. (NYSE Euronext: KCG) today announced the
release of "Current Perspectives on Modern Equity Markets: A Collection of
Essays by Financial Industry Experts," a book that examines how competition,
technology and recent innovations in U.S. equity markets have affected both
institutional and retail investors. Fourteen industry leaders and authorities
contributed chapters to the book, which was sponsored by Knight.

"We hope that this book helps to facilitate the broad discussion about
the U.S. equity markets," said Thomas M. Joyce, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer, Knight Capital Group. "We are witnessing a market transformation and
it is our hope that these conversations will help update the understanding of
how the equity markets function and the value they provide to all investors."

The book discusses how the trading markets are rapidly changing, and how
technology has helped to lower costs for both retail and institutional
trades, improve execution speed and quality, and add liquidity to the
marketplace. Each author contributed his observations, insights and
recommendations regarding how U.S. markets were shaped, how they currently
work and how they may look in the future. In their essays, several authors
also encourage regulators be deliberate and data-driven when considering new
rules and requirements.

"As technology changes how we conduct business and serve our customers,
the framework for governing equity markets must apply common sense rules and
strike the right balance between regulation and preservation of an open,
transparent and vibrant system," said NYSE Euronext Chief Executive Officer
Duncan L. Niederauer, who participated in the book. "The new global era of
financial markets requires innovation and international cooperation, and a
collective commitment to integrity."
