The identifier for each market participant. In cases where a Market-Making firm trades a security from a location other than its main trading location, a fifth-letter may be appended to the Market Makers identifier for that security.

Each Market Maker is free to use any letter to designate a specific branch location as desired. Listed below are the characters used with its corresponding market participant type. The firm name of the Market Participant. The geographic location or the trading desk s name of the firm. The telephone number of the geographic location or trading desk of the firm. In foreign exchange trading, where most deals are conducted Over-the-Counter and are, therefore, completely virtual, the market maker sells to and buys from its clients.

Hence, the client's loss and the spread is the market-maker firm's profit, which gets thus compensated for the effort of providing liquidity in a competitive market. This extra liquidity reduces transaction costs and therefore facilitates trades for the clients, who would otherwise have to accept a worse price or even not be able to trade at all.

Most foreign exchange trading firms are market makers and so are many banks, although not in all currency markets. Most stock exchanges operate on a matched bargain or order driven basis. In such a system there are no designated or official market makers, but market makers nevertheless exist. When a buyer's bid meets a seller's offer or vice versa, the stock exchange's matching system will decide that a deal has been executed.
