Program Trading Firms and NASDAQ Market Makers

Program Trading Firms

Program Trading averages more than 60% of the volume every day and on some days is a lot more.  During expiration week in June it usually is over 90% of the volume.  If you are trading stocks and index futures it is mandatory for you to know program trading and the premium execution levels for buy and sell programs.   And you must know exactly who is doing the program trading, exactly what time they are doing it, and with which stocks.

In order to help you learn more about that, we've listed the top program trading firms below.  We've also included their four letter Market Maker Symbol for making markets on Level III on the NASDAQ system.  Please do not confuse a Market Maker Symbol with a corporation's stock quotation symbol.  For example, the stock quotation symbol SUSQ is for Susquehanna Bancshares, Inc. and they are not market makers or program traders.

If you are trading stocks on NASDAQ Level II you need to know which NASDAQ market makers you should be watching very closely.  Especially when you see the premium move a lot.  We pay special attention to the NASDAQ market makers in red.  If you would like to know why, then contact us and we will answer you promptly.
