A market maker establishes reference prices for certain securities or groups of securities during the trading session, and permanently maintains buy and sell bids for minimum amounts of securities and with prices within the maximum spread established by the BMV.  This model helps temper price swings, moderating both upward and downward movement in stock quotations.  It does not alter conditions of supply and demand in the market–its purpose is to provide liquidity and sustain trading activity.
