For purposes of the Rule, the term "customer order" is defined as any order that is not for the account of a broker-dealer. The definition of "customer order" excludes any order for a quantity of a security having a market value of at least $200,000 for equity orders and $50,000 for options orders. The Term "covered securities" includes exchange-listed equities and NASDAQ National Market securities as well as NASDAQ Small Cap equities and listed options. Large orders are excluded in recognition of the fact that a general overview of order routing practices is more useful for smaller orders that tend to be homogeneous.
Rule 606 of Regulation NMS applies to all types of orders (e.g., pre-opening orders and short sale orders), but broker-dealers must give an overview of their routing practices only for non-directed orders. The Rule defines a "non-directed order" as any customer order other than a directed order. A "directed order" is defined as a customer order that the customer specifically instructs the broker-dealer to route to a particular venue for execution. Consequently, all customer orders are non-directed orders in the absence of a specific customer instruction on where they are to be routed.

Griffiths McBurney Corp (GMP Corp.) has prepared this report pursuant to U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Rule 606 of Regulation NMS, which requires all brokerage firms to make publicly available quarterly reports on their order routing practices.

Fort these non-directed orders, GMP Corp. has selected the execution venue on behalf of its customers. For purposed of the Rule, the term "customer orders" is defined as any orders that are not for the account of a broker-dealer.
The report is divided into three sections: one for securities listed on the New York Stock Exchanges, one for securities listing on the American Stock Exchange or regional exchanges and one for securities listed on the NASDAQ Stock Market, Inc.
