order protection rule means: The National Market System provision that requires trading centers to offer the same and consistent execution prices on securities across all exchanges. The Order Protection Rule, also known by Rule 611, was created to stop trade-throughs or execute trades at prices that are not the most quoted price. All stocks that are listed on the major indices as well as most stocks over-the-counter, fall under Rule 611. (in Stock Market Dictionary)
