IM-11364. Trading Securities As "Units" or Bonds "With Stock"

This rule is no longer applicable. NASD Rule 11000 Series has been superseded by FINRA Rule 11000 Series. Please consult the appropriate FINRA Rule.

Ruling of the Committee:

Where securities are physically separate instruments, transferable independently of one another, and not subject to any legal or technical condition which requires that they be kept together, good practice requires that they be quoted and dealt in separately and not as units. Where, for some special reason, members enter into a contract calling for a group of securities, they are cautioned to make adequate specification both at the time of trade and in their confirmation or comparison, so that uncertainty or misunderstanding in the settlement of the contract may be eliminated.
