Liquidity Programs


Supplemental Liquidity Providers (SLPs) are market makers and proprietary trading firms able to quote aggressively across a range of securities. By meeting stringent quoting requirements these firms are eligible for enhanced incentive structures.


NYSE Arca Lead Market Makers (LMMs) provide reliable liquidity throughout the trading day and during opening and closing auctions for NYSE Arca-listed ETPs. LMMs and Supplemental LMMs have opportunities for enhanced trading incentives when meeting certain market quality benchmarks.

NYSE and NYSE Arca Retail Liquidity

The NYSE and NYSE Arca Retail Liquidity programs promote cost savings through price improvement for individual investors on retail order flow for securities that trade on the NYSE and NYSE Arca markets. Offering price improvement for retail orders within an exchange environment offers individual investors new economic incentives and provides greater transparency, liquidity and competition in the U.S. cash equities marketplace. The program can be utilized by retail firms directly as well as by the brokers that service retail order flow providers.

NYSE Arca Market Maker

The all-electronic NYSE Arca relies on a system of competing Market Makers to provide a fast, efficient and consistent marketplace for all participants, including liquidity providers. Market Makers are required to maintain adequate minimum capital and continuous, two-sided identified and displayed quotes for all registered securities during Core Trading Hours (9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET).

Market Insights

The NYSE Research team explores market trends, analyzes exchange products and trading situations, and offers data-driven perspectives that promote greater understanding of our markets. For example, we recently analyzed how increased retail activity in the equities market has affected various aspects of trading, in particular the period immediately after the opening auction. Market participants often avoid this time of day due to higher volatility, an approach worth re-evaluating given current trends.
