  • Patent number: 8738484
    Abstract: An enhanced system and method for handling, matching and executing discretionary orders in an electronic options environment is disclosed. Market maker entitlements are integrated with the discretionary order processing, so that the market maker is guaranteed an allocation of the trade if the market maker is at the NBBO when an incoming discretionary order priced at or better than the NBBO is received. If the incoming discretionary order cannot execute at the NBBO using its display price, then it will use as much discretion as is required to participate in a market maker entitlement if the market maker is quoting at the NBBO, and to execute against the order book and route to away markets quotations at the NBBO. Once posted to the order book, only the display price of a discretionary order is eligible for preferential execution in a market maker entitlement process.

  • Patent number: 8392320
    Abstract: An enhanced system and method for the “smart” routing of orders in an electronic options environment is disclosed. The method of routing includes different rules and protocols for orders that are allowed to route using a traditional intermarket linkage than for orders that are allowed to route using an alternative private direct connection or third-party service provider. The system and method of routing has at its basis a configurable, rules-based routing table that allows orders to be routed using different protocols based on the account type of the incoming order.

  • Publication number: 20120228455
    Abstract: A frame element of an installation facility is fastened to a mounting plate of an electrical installation by a fastening element having at least two holding elements, arranged adjacent to one another in a shared plane, that can be elastically deformed relative to one another and each including at least one limb. The limbs are embodied such that they face one another along an imaginary straight line within the shared plane and include a segment of minimal spacing along the imaginary straight line. The spacings of the limbs from one another increase in all other segments along the imaginary line from the segment of minimal spacing.

  • Publication number: 20070078753
    Abstract: A directed order process and related market center are disclosed, wherein a market center grants permission to order sending firms to send directed order flow to participating designated market makers. Such designated market makers create a virtual guarantee order book for each permissioned order sending firm. If an order sending firm sends a directed order to the market center that is marketable against a virtual guarantee order, then the market center automatically pairs the orders in a two-sided directed cross order instruction, which executes against any superior trading interest in the marketplace first before crossing.
