Nominal quotes allows traders to set the appraised value of the security without being forced to engage in trade. Providing nominal sentences usually allow the trader to assess where it may be otherwise difficult to establish current benchmark. Nominal quotations will also allow brokers to provide rates for informational purposes only, without obligating the broker to enter the market at a certain price or volume.
For example the trader can purchase a contract on the futures exchange, only to find that no market-maker has released a firm price and, therefore, the contract price has not been established for a long period of time. In this case, the trader may request a nominal commercial offer, to get a feel for what the market-makers can offer in modern conditions before deciding whether to do the contract.

In the conversation, the broker-dealers also may use qualifiers and vague language to signal to traders that the numbers they mention are informational, and not a firm quote. For example, a dealer bond with a nominal offer to the client during the meeting to say: “this question seems to be about 3% yield to maturity”. However, if the same dealer and said, “this question will be on a 3% yield to maturity,” that would qualify as firm quote obligation for the dealer to issue bonds to such conditions.
