FINRA Automated Data Delivery System (FINRA ADDS)

FINRA Automated Data Delivery System® (FINRA ADDS®), formerly FINRA Data Delivery, is a secure website through which firms may request trade journals containing transactions submitted to FINRA TRAQS, as well as Tick Size Pilot Firm Review files.

FINRA offers daily trade journals for TRACE (fixed income) transactions as well as ADF and ORF (listed and over-the-counter equity) transactions. Monthly Tick Size Pilot Firm Review files are available for Trading Centers with Tick Size Appendix B.I and B.II calculations.

Note: firms with access to trade journals for TRACE will be given access to TRACE for Treasuries files automatically, if applicable, when they are produced beginning July 10, 2017. Current TRACE Trade Journals and/or TRACE Data Delivery SFTP subscribers do not need to take any action to receive the files when they become available. Please see the updated FINRA ADDS User Guide for more information.
