Two-Dollar Broker

A two-dollar broker is an outdated term used for a member of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) who managed trades and executed orders for another broker’s client. A broker might choose to have a two-dollar broker do business for them because the trader is too busy to take on the work themselves.
A two-dollar broker also would execute orders for a broker who does not have an exchange membership on the exchange floor, although some brokers have both a presence on the stock trading floor and a two-dollar broker who can handle orders at the same time
