A New Northern Market
Traders Magazine, August 2003
Canada has a new stock market. The Canadian Trading and Quotation System (CNQ) became Canada's third stock market in June when it launched with three listings and nine members. The electronic micro-cap market was created to fill a void left by the demise of the Canadian Dealing Network three years ago. Essentially a quotation service for over-the-counter dealers, the CDN had a reputation for shady dealings in fly-by-night companies.
