6140A. TRACS Processing
This rule is no longer applicable. NASD Rule 6140A has been superseded by FINRA Rule 7140. Please consult the appropriate FINRA Rule.
Locked-in trades may be determined through the TRACS trade comparison feature through one of the following methods:
(a) Trade Acceptance
The Reporting Party enters its version of the trade into the system and the contra party reviews the trade report and accepts or declines the trade. An acceptance results in a locked-in trade; a declined trade report is purged from the TRACS system at the end of trade date processing;
(b) T+N Trade Processing
T+N entries may be submitted until 6:30 p.m. each business day. At the end of daily matching, all declined trade entries will be purged from the TRACS system. TRACS will not purge any open trade (i.e. unmatched or unaccepted) at the end of its entry day, but will carry-over such trades to the next business day for continued comparison and reconciliation. TRACS will automatically lock in and submit to NSCC as such any carried-over T to T+21 (calendar day) trade if it remains open as of 2:30 p.m. on the next business day. TRACS will not automatically lock in T+22 (calendar day) or older open "as-of" trades that were carried-over from the previous business day; these trades will be purged by TRACS at the end of the carry-over day if such trades remain open. Members may re-submit these T+22 or older "as-of" trades into TRACS on the next business day for continued comparison and reconciliation for up to one calendar year.
