IEX Group, Inc., a Wings Sponsor since 2012 when IEX was founded, is holding a special trading day for MDA's Wings Over Wall Street on October 27, 2016, the day of the 16th Annual Wings Gala. IEX's K-Day for Wings means that every 1,000 share print on IEX contributes to a donation to Wings. K-Day follows IEX's successful block trading day in 2015, which resulted in a $50,000 donation to Wings. This year, a block trade is not required, only a trade of 1,000 shares on the IEX exchange. The more you trade 1,000 shares on IEX the more Wings will receive to fund ALS research.
Here's how it works: On IEX "K-Day," please help us support Wings Over Wall Street by optimizing your interactions to increase the potential for trades of at least 1,000 shares. The calculation for IEX’s “K-Day” donation are total shares traded via all trades of at least 1,000 shares multiplied by $0.0009. Trades involving displayed shares and broker self-crosses will count towards this donation.
John Schwall, IEX's co-founder and COO, is being honored on October 27th at Wings with the. Michael P. Beier Award. Please support John and IEX and trade via the IEX exchange on October 27th so that every 1,000 share trade will result in an increased donation to Wings to help us unlock the cure for ALS.
