Application of Market Versus Quote

A stock's Market Versus Quote is essentially the amount that a market maker takes as a commission for trading on a buyer or seller's behalf while accounting for risk.  A smaller Market Versus Quote value suggests that a security is more liquid than one with a higher MVQ.  A fast moving or volatile market will usually result in a higher risk premium.
