6750. Dissemination of Transaction Information

(a) Dissemination Upon Receipt
FINRA will disseminate information on all transactions in TRACE-Eligible Securities, including transactions effected pursuant to Securities Act Rule 144A, immediately upon receipt of the transaction report, except as provided in paragraphs (b) and (c) of this rule.
(b) Periodic Dissemination
FINRA will disseminate aggregated information on certain transactions in collateralized mortgage obligations (“CMOs”), including transactions in CMOs effected pursuant to Securities Act Rule 144A, where the transaction value is $1 million or more (calculated based upon original principal balance), and where there have been five or more transactions of $1million or more in the security in the period reported by at least two different market participant identifiers (“MPIDs”), on a weekly and monthly basis.
(c) Transaction Information Not Disseminated
FINRA will not disseminate information on a transaction in a TRACE-Eligible Security that is:
(1) identified with the non-member affiliate—principal transaction indicator pursuant to Rule 6730(d)(4)(E);
(2) a transfer of proprietary securities positions where the transfer (A) is effected in connection with a merger or direct or indirect acquisition and (B) is not in furtherance of a trading or investment strategy. Such transfers shall be reported in the manner prescribed by FINRA to denote that they are submitted for regulatory purposes and not for dissemination. Members must provide FINRA at least three business days advance written notice of their intent to use this exception, including the basis for their determination that the transfer meets the terms of the exception. Members must report such transfers on the same day as the ultimate transfer of the positions on their books and records, unless later reporting is warranted under specific circumstances;
(3) a List or Fixed Offering Price Transaction or a Takedown Transaction;
(4) a Securitized Product that is: a CMBS; a CDO; or a CMO if the CMO transaction value is $1 million or more (calculated based upon original principal balance) and the transaction does not qualify for periodic dissemination under paragraph (b) above, except as may be otherwise provided in Rule 7730; or
(5) a U.S. Treasury Security.

• • • Supplementary Material: --------------

.01 Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (c) of this Rule, FINRA may, in its discretion, publish or distribute aggregated transaction information and statistics on TRACE-Eligible Securities, other than U.S. Treasury Securities, that are not subject to dissemination at no charge (unless FINRA submits a rule filing imposing a fee for such data). Aggregated transaction information and statistics will not be published or distributed by individual security, and will not identify individual market participants or transactions.
