NewMarket Technology, Inc. to Discuss Recent FINRA Limit Order Protection Rule for OTC Marketplace in Friday Third Quarter Webcast

Webcast to Include Recent Positive Q3 Financial Report with 36% Net Income Increase to $3.7 Million and 20% Revenue Increase to $76 Million

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - November 20, 2008) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NMKT) announced today that management plans to discuss the recent FINRA Limit Order Protection rule in its upcoming third quarter review Webcast. Per the recent rule, as of November 11, 2008, no FINRA member firm may trade ahead of a customer limit order. According to information on the rule, broker-dealers that handle customer limit orders in OTC equities, whether received from their own customers or from another member firm, cannot trade ahead of customer limit orders. This means that a firm cannot trade for its own account at a price equal to or better than a customer limit order without also executing the customer order. The new rule is designed to improve the quality of executions for investors and improved market efficiency. This specialist-type obligation on OTC broker-dealers to execute customer limit orders price for price and share for share is considered one of the most significant regulatory safeguards of trading exchange-listed securities to investors in the OTC market. Limit Order Protection is designed to contribute substantially to transparency in the market and to results in better and fairer executions for investors, as well as standardize the regulation of trading in listed and OTC securities.
