CHICAGO, Feb. 1, 2001
– Terra Nova Trading, L.L.C. (“Terra Nova”), a leading direct access broker, today announced the introduction of trading in New York Stock Exchange and American Stock Exchange securities via the Island electronic communications network (ECN).

Effective immediately, Island orders can include all listed stock symbols -- including exchange-traded index funds like QQQ, DIA, SPY and others. By adding the Island-listed route to the existing ECN choices of Archipelago and Instinet, Terra Nova provides a comprehensive solution for traders who use ECNs as a primary execution point.

“We have seen executions in listed securities, specifically the AMEX QQQs and other exchange-traded funds, increase dramatically,” said John Hopkins, Terra Nova’s senior vice president of trading operations. “To meet this growing demand, we now provide our clients with the choice, convenience and flexibility to post listed trades on three of the major ECNs in the industry: Archipelago, Instinet and Island.”

Additional information regarding Listed Order routing is available at (800) 258-5409.
