Question of the Week

Which of the following equity trades would appear on the ticker tape after the trade is completed?

a) Secondary distribution
b) Specialist block purchase
c) Exchange distribution
d) Special offer
e) All of these would appear on the ticker tape


The correct answer is c

Exchange distribution is the only one that is announced after the fact. A special offer and a secondary distribution both appear beforehand, and the specialist block purchase never appears on the ticker tape.
