Proposed Rule Change Relating to TRACE Reporting and Dissemination of Transactions in Agency Pass-Through Mortgage-Backed Securities Traded To Be Announced

Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. ("FINRA") is filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC" or "Commission") a proposed rule change to amend FINRA Rule 6730 to reduce the period to report TRACE-Eligible Asset-Backed Securities that are Agency Pass-Through Mortgage-Backed Securities traded to be announced ("TBA") ("TBA transactions") in two stages; FINRA Rule 6750, to provide for the dissemination of TBA transactions; FINRA Rule 7730, to establish fees for real-time TBA transaction data and historical TBA transaction data; and FINRA Rule 6730 and FINRA Rule 7730, to delete references to a pilot program that is no longer in effect and to incorporate other minor administrative, technical or clarifying changes.  FINRA also proposes to establish a dissemination protocol providing that, for a TBA transaction in excess of $50 million, the size (volume) of the transaction would be displayed in disseminated TRACE data as $50 million plus.

 

This filing has been withdrawn and replaced with SR-FINRA-2012-020.
