restricted

Placed on a list that dictates that the trader may not maintain positions, solicit business, or provide indications in a stock, but may serve as broker in agency trade after being properly cleared. Traders are so restricted due to investment bank involvement with the company on nonpublic activity ( i.e., mergers and acquisitions defense), affiliate ownership, or underwriting activities; signified on the Quotron by a flashing "R." A restricted list and the stocks on it should never be conveyed to anyone outside of the trading areas, much less outside the firm. Bloomberg Financial Dictionary
