BNY ConvergEx Group, a provider of agency brokerage and investment technology services, has announced that its LiquidPoint was selected to provide workflow automation technology for the New York Stock Exchange Amex Options, which is a part of NYSE Euronext.
BNY ConvergEx said that the NYSE Amex Options trading floor booth operators are expected to now use LiquidPoint’s technology for execution and routing on the trading floor. This technology has been incorporated into the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) Amex Options trading platform and wireless network, made up of booth terminals and wireless handheld floor broker terminals.
