Indemnification agreements are usually established to manage the provisions of give-up trades. The executive broker (Part A) may or may not obtain the standard trading price. Executive brokers are often paid by non-floating brokers either on retainer or with a commission per trade. This full payment to the executive broker may be part of the commission that Broker B charges to his client. Although Floor Broker A places trading, it must abandon the transaction and record as if Broker B had done the trading. The transaction is recorded as if broker B had done the trading, although Floor Broker A did the trading.

Giving up is no longer a common business practice in financial markets.
Giving up was more common before the development of e-commerce. In the age of parquet trading, one broker may not be able to put it on the floor, and another broker would place trading as a kind of proxy. Overall, conducting a trade on behalf of another broker is usually part of a waiver agreement agreed upon in advance. Agreements concluded in advance usually contain provisions on OTC exchange procedures as well as compensation. Give-up trades are not standard practices, so payment is not clearly defined without prior agreement. Nasdaq only transmits information relating to the activities or maintenance of these 1DMs to designated representatives employed by the company to which an MPID has been assigned, as required by the Nasdaq Directive. The FIA Law and Compliance Division regularly publishes and updates standard agreements governing the eventual icing process. FIA Tech, meanwhile, manages Accelerate DocsTM (former give-up electronics system (EGUS)) which allows brokers, traders and clients to execute standard give up agreements electronically. Companies can use the model agreements either manually on paper or electronically in Accelerate DocsTM. The standard Trader and Customer Give-Up agreements are available for download here. In cases where originators and sales brokers are required to do otherwise, a fourth party may participate in a “give up trade”.
If the buying broker and the selling broker ask the two separate traders to act on their behalf, this scenario would lead to a renunciation on both the sales and buy sides. There are three main parties that participate in a give up trade. These parties include the executive broker (Part A), the client`s broker (Part B) and the broker who takes the opposite side of the trade (Part C). A standard trade consists of only two parts, the buying broker and the selling broker. Abandonment also requires another person who carries out the trade (Part A). Part A requests that trade be classified in the name of Part B in order to ensure the timely execution of a trade. In the registration books or in the trading protocol, a give-up trade indicates the client`s broker information (Part B). Party A executes the transaction on behalf of Party B and is not formally recorded in the trading protocol.
Abandonment is a securities or commodity trading procedure in which a broker-exporter places a trade on behalf of another broker. It is called “abandonment” because the broker who carries out the trading renounces credit for the transaction in the ledgers. A waiver normally occurs because a broker cannot place a trade for a client based on other employment obligations. A waiver may also occur because the original broker is working on behalf of an interdealer broker or prime broker….
