Key Advantages of NYSE Broker Collaboration


  • Orders received through NYSE floor brokers receive parity on the order book.
    • In contrast, orders entered through an automated system will be “at the end of the line” in the order queue.


  • “Discretionary quotes” provide investors with the flexibility to enter, change, or cancel an order with a NYSE floor broker up until 3:59:50 PM for the closing trade.
    • The deadline for Market-On-Close orders is 3:50:00.
  • D-Quotes provide a useful tool for participation on the closing trade.


  • Trade through Roberts & Ryan and no one will know where the order originated.
