We do not determine the importance of a trade based solely on when the order was received, but also consider the negotiated commission rates and spreads; the nature and characteristics of the markets in which the security is purchased or sold, the desired timing of the trade, the existing and expected market activity relating to the security, the confidentiality in handling the execution and clearance of the transaction, plus the reputation, soundness and settlement capabilities of the brokers we engage.
