Each marketplace maintains a body of rules to regulate its member organizations and their associated persons. At the core of each Rulebook are the underlying notions of just and equitable principles of trade and sound business practices. The rules are designed to prevent fraudulent or manipulative acts and practices, and provide a means by which FINRA, on behalf of NYSE Regulation, can take appropriate disciplinary action when rule violations occur.
Each marketplace is subject to SEC regulatory oversight. Accordingly, all rules and rule amendments proposed the individual markets must be submitted to the SEC for approval.
