Liquidity Provider Program Launched for NYSE Bonds

NYSE Euronext has received final approval from the SEC to create a “Bond Liquidity Provider” program on its fixed-income trading venue, NYSE BondsSM.

Bond Liquidity Providers (BLPs) must be NYSE members.  BLPs will have the responsibility of providing live bids and offers for the corporate debt of NYSE listed companies. Publicly available, real-time quotes will help trading firms meet best execution obligations, with the aim to enhance retail investors’ participation.  NYSE Bonds will maintain and match orders on a strict price-time priority basis. All quotes on NYSE Bonds are live and executable.
