Drawing on its heritage as the American Stock Exchange, NYSE American is an exchange designed for growing companies, and offers investors greater choice in how they trade.

NYSE American is a competitively priced venue that blends unique features derived from the NYSE, such as electronic Designated Market Makers (e-DMMs) with quoting obligations for each NYSE American-listed company, with NYSE Arca's fully electronic price/time priority execution model.

NYSE American also delivers advanced functionality, such as an intentional delay mechanism, which is intended to encourage midpoint trading strategies, and discretionary pegged orders, which provide investors with an additional way to patiently enter and exit positions while limiting adverse selection.
