Proposed Rule Change to Establish Minimum Quarterly Threshold for Securities Transaction Credit Under NASD Rule 7001C

Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”) (f/k/a National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. (“NASD”)) is filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC” or “Commission”) a proposed rule change to establish a minimum quarterly threshold for FINRA members that report transactions to the NASD/NSX Trade Reporting Facility (the “NASD/NSX TRF”) to be eligible to receive the securities transaction credit under NASD Rule 7001C (Securities Transaction Credit). In addition, FINRA is proposing a technical change to clarify an ambiguity relating to the definition of “Tape B” in Rule 7001C.
