NYSE Pillar®

Our Integrated Trading Technology Platform

NYSE Pillar is our new integrated trading technology platform that will enable member firms to connect to all of our equities and options markets using a single specification. NYSE Pillar is designed to improve efficiency and reduce complexity for customers, while enhancing consistency, performance and resiliency.

The remaining markets (NYSE Arca Options, NYSE American Options, Global OTC and NYSE Bonds) and NYSE Floor Broker connectivity will follow.


This new NYSE Pillar technology offers
