lBlt fir.rtlrf Ctert fart CWWed., Apr. U,m Amex Plans Huge Trading Capacity Hike NEW YORK UV-The American Stock Exchange announced Tuesday a major expansion of automation facilities to increase dramatically daily trading capacity and help eliminate the paperwork logjam. ". The objective is to increase the clearing capacity of the exchange and the National Over-the-Counter Corp. from 18 million shares to about 40 million shares a day, the Amex said. The exchange said it already had initiated ac tion to implement expansion of the clearing operation on a step -by -step basis. The exchange's enlarged computer complex will: 1 Broaden NOTC clearing services to include 1,000 members (now 200), handle 15,000 OTC security issues (now 3,000) and handle up to 40,000 trades daily (now 10,000). 2 Establish a nationwide computerized service to reduce "fail" problems where the broker fails to deliver the shares in the required period of time and "DK" snafus where a trade is made but the record is misplaced by the brokerage firm, in the OTC market. The over- the-counter market, super- vised by the National Assn. of Securities Dea lers, handles primarily the issue of smaller and less developed companies, with trades made from broker to broker rather than through an exchange. 3 Provide for the even tual linkup of exchange-NOTC clearing facilities and the national clearing operations of the National Assn. of Securities Dealers. 4 Increase other automated services, including more sophisticated sur veillance and stock watch operations. A key feature of the expansion program will be the introduction bv the exchange and the National OTC Porp. of & computerized I comparison service for fK!is outside of New Yorklity which trade with NOTC members here. Out of town trade informa tion would be transmitted to New York where it would be computer- matched. PARVIN Continued from 8th Page of relationship here.
