NYSE Pillar

NYSE Pillar®

Integrated Trading Technology

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

NYSE Arca Options and NYSE American Options are the next NYSE markets to migrate to NYSE Pillar, with NYSE Arca Options planned for November 2021 and NYSE American Options to follow in 2022.

Upon completion of the migration, the NYSE options exchanges will provide the benefits of the NYSE Pillar platform, which offers:

More efficient processing, enhanced determinism and lower latency

Shorter time to market for ongoing enhancements

Simplified, harmonized order types, terminology, and messaging across all of our markets
