NYSE to Expand Floor Trading to All U.S. Equity Securities in 2017

The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), part of Intercontinental Exchange
(NYSE:ICE), today announced plans to expand its floor-based trading
operations, offering investors even greater access to trade all U.S.
securities for the first time with NYSE’s unique and proven market model.

NYSE plans to offer trading in all U.S. securities, including
Nasdaq-listed symbols and all listed exchange traded products. This move
represents continued, significant investment by ICE in the NYSE trading
floor operations to bring greater value, transparency and efficiency to
the U.S. equity markets. NYSE Arca Equities already offers trading in
all U.S. securities. NYSE MKT will expand to include trading in all U.S.
securities when it moves to an electronic Price/Time model in the second
quarter of 2017.

NYSE is one of the world’s enduringly active trading floors and is the
only U.S. exchange to offer Parity
allocation. The NYSE allocation model deemphasizes speed so that
multiple participating investors have equal access to trade at the same
price, regardless of when an order arrived. With the expansion, NYSE’s
trading floor members will be able to offer their clients the benefit of
parity in securities listed on other U.S. equity exchanges.

Today, the NYSE Group consistently trades more volume than any other
U.S. exchange. By year-end 2017, all NYSE markets will trade the full
universe of 8,600 U.S. listed securities, including exchange traded
products, when NYSE migrates to NYSE Pillar.

“We have a long-standing commitment to providing our issuers and member
firms with choice. Our plan to provide even greater access to trade U.S.
securities is a positive move toward bolstering fair and transparent
liquidity and offering even greater choice,” said Stacey Cunningham,
NYSE COO.

“We are committed to our proven market model that combines hi-tech
trading capabilities with human judgment at the point of sale on our
iconic NYSE trading floor. We believe our model consistently delivers
the best trading outcomes and lowest volatility for listed companies and
investors, and NYSE listed companies will still receive the exclusive
benefit of a NYSE Designated
Market Maker
.”

NYSE’s announcement follows a series of strategic investments, including
the development of NYSE Pillar, the state-of-the-art trading system, and
extensive renovations to its 11 Wall Street trading floor and offices,
including the Bell podium, and enhancements to its event and
conferencing space designed to host world-class events for NYSE-listed
companies.
