TRAQS Naming Convention Changes

January 14, 2013

On Monday, January 28, 2013, FINRA will modify the TRAQS Trade Reporting and Quotation Service website. The changes are only related to naming conventions in the website banner and the main menu, and access to functionality will not be affected.

“TRAQS” will no longer be displayed on the site and new product descriptions will be visible.

Users that currently subscribe to the current TRAQS website for both TRACE OTC corporate and agency debt and TRACE securitized products trade reporting will continue to have access to the site without interruption and the secure website URL,, will continue to be supported. Users accessing the secure web API for reference data downloads will continue to use that domain.
