As previously communicated in the March 5, 2009 Trader Update and in the February 2, 2009 Trading Technology Information Memo, as part of the NYSE's deployment of the Super Display Book (SDBK) database and in response to member firm's requests, an expanded Account Field
The Account Field is an optional 32-byte tag that firms can choose to populate with their own order or customer identification information. Once the NYSE activates the aforementioned functionality, any information entered in the Account Field will be passed back to firms on all responses via CCG. (Note: the information in the Account Field will not be passed back on orders routed to the BBSS and e-Broker systems.) Firms wishing to test their systems can do so in the User Acceptance Test (UAT) environment between the hours of 9:00 AM and 10:00 PM (with product support available between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM) by contacting our Service Desk at 1-866-873-7422 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
