NYSE To Trade QQQ, SPY And DIA Starting On July 31 NEW YORK, July 12 -- The New York Stock Exchange will initiate unlisted trading in the three most-active exchange traded funds (ETFs) on Tuesday, July 31. They include the Nasdaq 100 Index Tracking Stock (QQQ), Standard & Poor's Depositary Receipts (SPY) and The Dow Industrials DIAMONDS (DIA).

Under a modified fee schedule for the UTP ETFs, the NYSE will not charge transaction fees to any constituent for the first three months of trading. Specialist firms will also waive commissions during this period. After three months, customer agency trades are expected to remain free of Exchange transaction charges, while member-firm proprietary trades and specialists are expected to be subject to competitive Exchange fees. Specialist firm Spear, Leeds & Kellogg will be responsible for making a market in QQQ, and Bear Hunter Structured Products Trading for SPY and DIA.
