Equity options, which are the most common type of equity derivative, give an investor the right but not the obligation to buy a call or sell a put at a set strike price prior to the contract’s expiry date. Brokers and traders can access options listed on NYSE Amex and NYSE Arca through a single technology platform that offers a dual options market structure. By combining both markets, investors benefit from NYSE Amex’s pro-rata, customer priority model that encourages deep liquidity and NYSE Arca’s price-time priority model that provides enhanced throughput and encourages market makers to offer the best possible price.
