JERSEY CITY, New Jersey and LONDON, November 8, 2010 - Knight Capital Group, Inc. (NYSE Euronext: KCG) today announced that its
smart order execution algorithm, FAN, has been named "Best Broker-Supplied
Tool/Technology," and its Oasis smart order execution algorithm for sourcing
small- and mid-cap liquidity has been named "Best Buy-Side New Product" by
Waters Technology in the magazine's 2010 Buy-Side Technology Awards.

"We see an increasing number of institutions adopting sophisticated
liquidity-sourcing technology, including next-generation algorithms like FAN
and Oasis," said Joseph Wald, Managing Director at Knight. "Both are examples
of execution strategies that allow buy-side firms of all sizes to participate
in the markets on a level playing field using the most sophisticated
technology available."

Knight's algorithmic suite is accessed through Knight Direct, Knight's
multi-asset class execution management system, as well as through a number of
third-party execution and order management systems via Knight Direct's FIX
capabilities. The algorithms are powered by FAN, a smart order execution
algorithm which sources liquidity from multiple destinations simultaneously,
while adapting to market conditions in real time and re-circulating orders to
where executions are occurring. Oasis uses innovative logic to source
liquidity in thin and difficult-to-trade names with increased efficiency and
opportunities for price improvement as well as greater fulfillment.

"Single-stock algorithms are still evolving through ever-new and better
ways to access the markets, with tangible and valuable differences between
the offerings. We thank our clients for recognizing what sets Knight apart
and helping us to gain recognition through respected independent parties like
Waters Technology, as well as for continuing to trust Knight for high-quality
trade executions."
