NYSE Arca Options is the options trading platform from NYSE Euronext. The exchange is a "hybrid market" which offers both electronic and floor executed options. The exchange has floor operations in San Francisco, the location of the former Pacific Stock Exchange.
Key features of the system include:
- A market structure blending price-time priority with Lead Market Maker participation (LMM)
- Expanded order types
- An increase in the number of classes per Options Trading Permit (OTP) that a Market Maker may select for its appointment
The NYSE Arca Options market is a “hybrid” market, with both screen trading and floor trading. Market participants can trade electronically through the all-electronic trading platform (OX), or by open outcry at the NYSE Arca Options floor in San Francisco. The floor facility enables broker-negotiated trades, particularly for large crosses and complex orders.
All NYSE Arca Options products are available electronically. NYSE Arca Options blends price-time priority with a Lead Market Maker (LMM) program.
NYSE Arca Options, one of currently six US equity options exchanges, was formerly the Pacific Exchange. In 2005, Archipelago Holdings, owner and operator of ArcaEx, an electronic equities exchange, acquired the San Francisco-based Pacific Exchange and began building a completely new electronic options platform based on Archipelago’s successful equities trading platform.
NYSE Euronext's proposal for the expansion of the SEC's Penny Pilot program, filed by NYSE Arca options, was approved for market-wide implementation by the SEC on September 23, 2009. The approval extends the proposed pilot through December 31, 2010.
