As a member at Nasdaq Derivatives Market there is a possibility to become a Market Maker in listed series on all Nordic markets.
The purpose of the Market Maker program is to maintain a high level of order book liquidity in options and futures on Nordic shares and indices.
A Market Maker agrees to provide quotes on its Market Maker account regarding various exchange listed instruments in accordance with an agreement between the member and the exchange (Market Maker Agreement). In exchange the Market Maker receives a number of benefits such as Market Maker fees and multi-quote functionality.
When a Market Maker Agreement is signed, an appendix needs to be signed for each market segment (Swedish, Danish, Finnish and Norwegian) where the member wishes to become a Market Maker. Separate appendices needs to be signed depending on whether the member wishes to become a Market Maker on Monthly and/or Weekly Options.
