Market makers are trading participants who provide additional liquidity in the order book with binding buy and sell bids (quotes) and ensure execution at market-driven prices.
In addition to the market makers in the prime market, the top segment for equities, BBO market makers (Best Bid and Offer) ensure an increase in price quality. The BBO Market Maker undertakes to offer liquidity at the best available prices – at the top of the order book.
(BBO) Market Makers contribute to narrowing the price spreads on the Vienna Stock Exchange and to increasing liquidity, thus strengthening the attractiveness of trading in instruments on the Vienna Stock Exchange. All investors, both private and institutional, benefit from an increase in price quality.
