Order Routing

On November 17, 2000, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission adopted Exchange Act Rules 11Ac1-5 and 11Ac1-6 to provide further visibility to the investing public regarding the execution quality of the securities markets and the order routing practices of registered brokerage firms.

Rule 11Ac1-5 generally requires market centers that trade national market securities to make available to the public monthly electronic reports that include uniform statistical measures of execution quality for market orders or limit orders received or executed during regular market trading hours.

Rule 11Ac1-6 generally requires broker/dealers that route customer orders in national system securities, NASDAQ SmallCap equities, and listed options to make publicly available quarterly reports that disclose venues to which they route non-directed orders. It also requires broker/dealers to disclose the nature of any relationship they have with those venues, including any payment for order flow arrangements.
