  1. Hi,

    ECNs are using differents symbols in the book,
    please where to find a full list of symbols that

    INET, ARCA, BRUT, ATTN are using if they are
    in a Nyse, Nasdaq, Amex book?

    I'm from Europe and for me it's hard to find
    such informations, I was looking for on website ... but I don't find the list.

  2. H2O


  3. H2O


    I didn't knew the answer as well, but I asked someone who I think should know it and he told me that if you post through an ECN the quote only shows in the book of this ECN. So if you post through INET, the only book thatwould show your bid / offer would be the INET book.

    Again, not sure if this is right...

    If you know the answer, please post it here.
  4. yes it is,

    so I could "test" and to know each symbol sendit 100 shares in buy or sell in the book, so I can see with which simbol I get shown in if I use INET, ARCA, BRUT, ATTN, BTRD, TRAC etc..

    this is for who have an account, but I would to know the symbol
    of each of them if I'm in a Nasdaq, Nyse or Amex book,

    I think that there is a list of symbols with who the ECNs do
    business and get shown in the book level2.

    What you said I understand of course, if you send an order
    on a ECN you get show only there.
