Industry Leaders Working Together to Distribute Key Data Over a Trusted Global Network
New York, July 16, 2013 - NYSE Technologies, the commercial technology division of NYSE Euronext, today announced that it has reached an agreement with market-maker, Citadel Securities LLC, to offer the Citadel Securities Grey Sheet OTC Quote feed via SuperFeed.
