National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations system

Nasdaq. A computerized system established by the 

NASD

 to facilitate 

Trading

 by providing broker/dealers with current 

Bid

 and 

Ask

 price quotes on 

Over-the-Counter

 stocks and some 

Listed

 stocks. Unlike the 

AMEX

 and the NYSE, the 

Nasdaq

 (once an acronym for the 

National Association of Securities Dealers

 Automated 

Quotation

 system) does not have a physical trading 

Floor

 that brings together buyers and sellers. Instead, all 

Trading

 on the Nasdaq 

Exchange

 is done over a network of computers and telephones. Also, the 

Nasdaq

 does not employ 

Market

 specialists to 

Buy

 unfilled orders like the 

NYSE

 does. The 

Nasdaq

 began when brokers started informally 

Trading

 via telephone; the network was later formalized and linked by computer in the early 1970s. In 1998 the parent company of the 

Nasdaq

 purchased the Amex, although the two continue to operate separately. Orders for stock are sent out electronically on the Nasdaq, where 

Market

 makers list their 

Buy

 and 

Sell

 prices. Once a price is agreed upon, the 

Transaction

 is executed electronically.
