On September 20th, the SEC provided notice of the NASDAQ Stock Market LLC's proposal to adopt rules to enhance minimum quotation requirements for market makers. Nasdaq will require market makers for each stock in which they are registered to continuously maintain a two-sided quotation within a designated percentage of the National Best Bid and National Best Offer as appropriate. These enhanced market maker quotation requirements are intended to eliminate trade executions against market maker placeholder quotations priced far away from the inside market (generally referred to as "stub quotes"). Comments should be submitted on or before October 18, 2010. SEC Release No. 34-62950.
