The exchange of securities between buyers and sellers is the primary distinction between the NYSE and the Nasdaq. The auction technique determines NYSE stock prices at market openings and closures. On the NYSE trading floor, designated market makers are the listed company’s human point of contact. Market makers provide two-sided and price quotations for a security for which they create a market. Market makers at the Nasdaq keep stock inventories to buy and sell from their own accounts by dealing with private clients and other dealers.
