Locates Query


Users may input security requests either into the Quick Locates tool bar (always available) or directly into the Locates grid. Securities that are considered ETB will
be returned immediately. Securities that are Hard to Borrow will either be sent to the trading desk for allocation and approval or returned declined or partial fill.
