Nyse Euronext secures SEC approval for retail liquidity programme

06 July 2012  |  4582 views  |  0 stock quotes

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has given Nyse Euronext the green light to pilot a programme designed to attract retail investors from dark pools.

The retail liquidity programme, set to launch next month, will offer investors Nyse and Nasdaq listed stock quotes in increments of less than a penny, enabling them to get better prices.

This sub-penny pricing on exchanges is usually prohibited under SEC rules but not to other trading venues, which has meant many retail investors have turned to dark pools.

The SEC says the move - which is expected to be copied by other exchanges - will help promote competition but both the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association and the Securities Traders Association have objected.

Joseph Mecane, EVP, Nyse Euronext, says: "Providing price improvement for retail orders within an exchange environment affords individual investors new economic incentives and ensures greater transparency, liquidity and competition throughout the US cash equities marketplace."
