  30. 30. Nasdaq  NASDAQ was founded in 1971, and provided quotes for Over-the- Counter (OTC) stocks not listed on other markets. For that reason, it became associated in peoples minds with technology stocks. The Nasdaq, on the other hand, is not a physical entity. The Nasdaq, on the other hand, is strictly an electronic exchange. . Nasdaq is essentially a telecommunication network that links thousands of geographically dispersed, market-making participants. Nasdaq is an electronic quotation system that provides price quotations to market participants on Nasdaq listed stocks. Although there is no critical trading floor, Nasdaq has become an electronic “virtual trading floor”. There are more than 4700 common stocks included in the Nasdaq system with a total market value of over $3.5 trillion. 30

Dealer’s MarketThe Nasdaq is a dealer’s market, wherein market participants are notbuying from and selling to one another but to and from a dealer,which, in the case of the Nasdaq, is a market maker The Nasdaq isa computer-based stock exchange where buyers and sellers meetelectronically . 31
  32. 32. Over-the-counter(OTC)marketThe Nasdaq is an Over-the-counter(OTC)market and it relies onmarket makers rather than specialists to facilitate tradingand liquidity in stocks.

Amarket maker is a broker-dealer who facilitates the tradingof shares by posting bid and ask prices along with maintainingan inventory of sharesNasdaq has nearly 300 market makersUnlike their counterparts at the NYSE, the market makers workthrough a computer network rather than on the floor of aphysical exchange.Their job is, literally, to make a market in a particular security.Here is what they do: •They fill orders for their company’s customers and for their own account •They also act as dealers to profit from the difference between the bid and ask price for the stockThe Nasdaq requires market markers to provide a “two-sidedquote” in the securities they cover. 35
  36. 36. Buy and SellThis means they must post a price they will buy at and a pricethey will sell at (a bid and ask price –These prices along withcustomer orders go into the Nasdaq computer system and thesystem ranks the orders.The best prices to buy and the best prices to sell automaticallygo to the top of the queue and the computer fills them first. Thedifference is the computer moves orders and prices through thesystem faster than any human ever couldUnless you have access to an information provider that offersLevel II Nasdaq screens, you will never see this process at work.Level II screens reveal the process of ranking prices and atremendous amount of information about orders.Level II ScreensYou can buy access to Level II screens from a number ofvendors; however, it could cost up to $300 per month or moredepending on what options you choose.Day traders, swing traders and others who trade on very tightmargins need this type of information.
