NYSE Arca Europe to introduce US equities from 21 April
NYSE Arca Europe, NYSE Euronext’s European multilateral trading facility, will be giving customers access to the 100 most liquid US equities, featuring 86 NYSE listed companies and 14 other listings, from 21 April.
NYSE Arca Europe is inviting customers to set up their trading arrangements and will be offering a three-month fee holiday from 21 April.
The service will provide trading firms the first-ever opportunity to trade US securities on a European platform during European trading hours with settlement at DTC.
In addition to the initial US stocks, further stocks are likely to be introduced in the near future.
Virginie Saade (pictured), head of NYSE Arca Europe, says: “This is an exciting day for NYSE Arca Europe as we lead this pioneering venture into US equities. We have a number of market markers who have committed to offering prices in the US stocks and a business that we will, in time, build with our customers.”
A small number of the 100 stocks are pending Financial Services Authority approval and while they will be listed on the platform, they will be suspended until full validation from the FSA.
