An electronic stock and options exchange formed by a merger between the New York Stock Exchange and the Archipelago Exchange in 2006.

NYSE Arca.

NYSE Arca, one of the two securities exchanges operated by the NYSE Group, Inc., is the first open, all-electronic stock exchange in the United States.

Trades are executed quickly -- electronically and anonymously -- on the US market trading center with the best available price. Among the securities traded on Arca are individual stocks, exchange-traded funds, and equity options.

NYSE Arca was formed by the merger of the NYSE and Archipelago Exchange, an electronic communications network (ECN), creating what is known as a hybrid market.
