Frequently Asked Questions
  What is the role of MarketWatch?
Identification Number 1038
MarketWatch provides real-time surveillance for activity on the Nasdaq Stock Market, Nasdaq BX, Nasdaq PSX, Nasdaq and Nasdaq BX Options Markets, and Nasdaq Futures to maintain an orderly marketplace and level playing field for investors, market participants and listed companies. In an effort to foster marketplace integrity, MarketWatch oversees the complete and timely disclosure of material information by Nasdaq-listed companies. In addition, MarketWatch monitors compliance with Exchange rules and policies through real-time surveillance of price and volume information reported by market participants in equities, options, and futures transactions. MarketWatch works closely with Nasdaq business lines and FINRA in an effort to provide fair and equitable regulation for the Nasdaq markets. When activity is suspected of being potentially in violation of Exchange rules and policies, MarketWatch refers the activity to FINRA's regulatory groups for further review and potential disciplinary action. Information received by MarketWatch is confidential and used strictly for regulatory purposes. MarketWatch implements fair and independent decisions within the scope of its authority and without influence from other Nasdaq offices.  MarketWatch also recognizes the need to have technical expertise on staff to assist with maintaining regulatory compliance when changes are made to Nasdaq trading systems, rule book, data feeds, and surveillance applications. The Regulatory Technology team is responsible for ensuring that both business and technical changes are in compliance with the Nasdaq rule book.
