N] is biggest in the "on-ask" category and smallest in the "on-bid" category, indicating that posting the best ask (bid) only attracts relatively more buy (sell) orders in a market with a heavy presence of preferenced sell orders.
Three categories are identified if the market maker is on the best ask (bid): A_1 (B_1) includes the trades of those market makers who stand alone on the best ask (bid), A_2 (B_2) includes the trades of those market makers who post the best ask (bid) when the number of market makers on the best ask (bid) is less than half of the total number of market makers, and A_3 (B_3) include the trades of those market makers who post the best ask (bid) when the number of market makers on the best ask (bid) is equal to or more than half of the total number of market makers.
If a market maker has been on the best ask, then a move to a category with more (less) market makers on the best ask increases (reduces) [[DELTA].

Similar to the findings in the previous section, the results show that, with very rare exceptions, a move to a category with more (less) market makers on the best ask significantly increases (reduces) [[DELTA].
