Traders Magazine, June 2003
Mellon Equity Associates, a quant shop where Marlene Walker Smith works as a senior equity trader, is increasingly moving toward more electronic trading.

"We've always embraced new technology, but ECNs have become even more important in the way we're trading these days," said Smith, who is a vice president at Mellon Equity. "We're probably trading in excess of 50 percent of our Nasdaq order flow on ECNs."
