Amendments to TRACE Reporting Requirements and Dissemination of Agency Pass-Through Mortgage-Backed Securities Traded To Be Announced

As a reminder, amendments to FINRA Rule 6700 Series and TRACE dissemination protocols regarding the reporting and dissemination of transactions in TRACE-eligible securities that are agency pass-through mortgage-backed securities that are traded to be announced (TBA transactions) will go into effect on Monday, November 12, 2012.

 

In addition, on November 12, 2012, FINRA will launch the Securitized Products Dissemination ServiceSM (SPDSSM). Similar to the Bond Trade Dissemination Service (BTDS) and Agency Debt Trade Dissemination Service (ATDS) data feeds for Corporate and Agency Debt, SPDS will disseminate real-time last sale data and transactions of TRACE-eligible securities that are agency pass-through mortgage-backed securities traded to be announced (TBA) via an IP Multicast channel.

 

Please contact FINRA Product Management or call (866) 899-2107 for technical questions regarding this implementation.

 

Please contact TRACE Data Services or call (888) 507-3665 for questions on how to subscribe to the SPDS data feed.
