Inclusion in the Power Partners Program is based on customers' usage of NYSE Euronext markets and NYSE Technologies data, products and services.

The program is currently available to U.S. data vendors, broker-dealers, retail broker-dealers, order management systems, execution management systems, broker systems, service bureaus and technologies distributors and resellers.
Power Partner designations range from one to three portals; the more criteria met, the higher the number of portals and the greater the marketing rewards for the Power Partner. Marketing rewards include varying levels of advertising opportunities, visibility at Trader Forums, public relations, and recognition on NYSE Euronext websites.
