Limit Order Information System - LOIS
This system is used to locate the best securities prices available and produces information about securities traded on participating exchanges like the Nasdaq and NYSE. A limit order is an order to buy or sell a stock at a specific price, and includes information such as order quantities, bid price, offer and the exchange on which the security is listed. Limit orders help protect buyers or sellers of a stock from selling at a price that is higher or lower than desired.
