1 Note that under FINRA Rule 4521, free credit balances in customers’ cash accounts and customers’ securities margin accounts must be reported as two separate data points.

 

2 As of February 2010, data are collected pursuant to FINRA Rule 4521 and are aggregated across all member firms, regardless of whether the firm was designated to NASD or the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) before the consolidation of NASD and the member firm regulation operations of NYSE Regulation in July 2007 that created FINRA.

 

Historical Data

 

Through January 2010, NYSE and FINRA each independently collected similar margin data from their respective member firms. The data below are divided into three sections:

 

  1. FINRA statistics only (from FINRA-designated clearing firms only);
  2. NYSE statistics only (from NYSE-designated clearing firms only); and
  3. Combined statistics from both FINRA and NYSE beginning in 1997.

 

For the period of July 2007 (when NASD and the member firm regulation operations of NYSE Regulation consolidated to become FINRA) through January 2010, the NYSE statistics set forth below include clearing firms historically designated to NYSE, and the FINRA statistics include clearing firms historically designated to NASD.

 

Note that the combined FINRA and NYSE statistics as given below have been compiled from different reports that member firms submitted to FINRA or NYSE, as required.
