2. Direct Market Access

2.1 Direct Market Access may take place in the following manner:

(b) where the Member permits its customer to transmit orders electronically to the Member's infrastructure (i.e., system architecture, which may include technical systems and/or connecting systems), where the order is in turn automatically transmitted for execution to a market under the Member's member ID.
