Nasdaq features a price/time priority model where the execution logic is fair and transparent for all market participants.
All displayed limit orders are treated equally and executed in the order in which they were received at the same price. Non-displayed shares are executed after displayed shares in the order in which they were received at that price.
Nasdaq offers popular orders and functionality such as Minimum Quantity, Mid-Point Peg and Post Only orders, Self Match Prevention and Order Modify functionality, a robust suite of innovative routing strategies and our award-winning opening and closing crosses.
Nasdaq's equity order types are designed to help members comply with regulation and execute a range of trading strategies. To understand the available order types, view the Order Types Guide
