STA to SEC: Forget the ADF
Traders Magazine, August 2002

STA officials continue to argue that the SuperMontage is going to improve the marketplace because the quality of executions will be better. However, STA officials say they don't have the same confidence in the National Association of Securities Dealers' ADF.
