A term used to describe a transaction between three brokers in which one does not use his/her name. For example, a broker receives a buy order that he or she can’t transact. The broker asks a second broker to handle the order. So the second broker buys the stock from a third broker on behalf of the first broker’s client. The transaction is recorded in the records of the firms and exchange as if the first broker was never involved.
