Trading and Best Execution Insights – Interview with Andrew Oppenheimer, Head of Business Development and Strategy, Nasdaq

Ari Burstein, Founder, Trading Evolved, spoke with Andrew Oppenheimer, Head of Business Development and Strategy at Nasdaq to provide a preview into some of the issues that will be discussed at the Trading Evolved Trading and Best Execution Summit on June 14, 2022 at the Metropolitan Club in New York.

The interview focused on:

  • Order Types: How exchanges are utilizing order types as one of the ways to differentiate themselves to accommodate the needs of different market participants, specifically Nasdaq’s MELO (Midpoint Extended Life Order).
  • Competition among Exchanges: Beyond order types, how exchanges distinguish themselves when it comes to the services they are providing in a way that is beneficial to the end investor.
  • Rise of Retail Trading: How the trend earlier in 2022 changed the way Nasdaq (and other exchanges) looks at the markets, and whether there are opportunities for more orders to be traded on-exchange due to this trend.
