[FR Doc. 2019–18265 Filed 8–21–19; 11:15 am] BILLING CODE 3210–01–P SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION [Release No. 34–86706; File No. SR–FINRA– 2019–019] Self-Regulatory Organizations; Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc.; Order Approving Proposed Rule Change To Expand OTC Equity Trading Volume Data Published on FINRA’s Website August 19, 2019. I. Introduction On July 1, 2019, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (‘‘FINRA’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’), pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 a proposed rule change to amend FINRA Rules 6110 and 6610 to expand the summary firm data relating to over-thecounter (‘‘OTC’’) equity trading that FINRA publishes on its website. The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on July 11, 2019.3 The Commission received two comment letters in support of the proposed rule change.4 This order approves the proposed rule change. II. Description of the Proposal Currently, FINRA publishes certain volume information for OTC transactions in NMS stocks 5 and OTC Equity Securities,6 that are executed 1 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. 3 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 86315 (July 5, 2019), 84 FR 33098 (July 11, 2019) (‘‘Notice’’). 4 See letters to Vanessa Countryman, Secretary, Commission from: Ray Ross, Chief Technology Officer, Clearpool Group (‘‘Clearpool’’), dated August 1, 2019 (‘‘Clearpool Letter’’); Stephen John Berger, Managing Director, Global Head of Government & Regulatory Policy, Citadel Securities (‘‘Citadel’’), dated August 1, 2019 (‘‘Citadel Letter’’). 5 ‘‘NMS stock’’ is defined in Rule 600(b)(47) of the Commission’s Regulation NMS. See 17 CFR 242.600(b)(47). 6 ‘‘OTC Equity Security’’ means any equity security that is not an NMS stock, other than a Restricted Equity Security. See FINRA Rule 6420(f). A ‘‘Restricted Equity Security’’ means any equity security that meets the definition of ‘‘restricted security’’ as contained in Securities Act Rule 2 17 PO 00000 Frm 00067 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 44341 outside of an alternative trading system (‘‘ATS’’).7 All published data is derived directly from OTC transactions reported to a FINRA equity trade reporting facility. FINRA does not charge a fee for this data.8 Currently, FINRA publishes weekly non-ATS OTC volume information (number of trades and shares) by firm and by security on a two-week or fourweek delayed basis. Weekly securityspecific information for transactions in NMS stocks in Tier 1 of the NMS Plan to Address Extraordinary Market Volatility (‘‘Tier 1 NMS stocks’’) is published on a two-week delayed basis, while information on the remaining NMS stocks (‘‘Tier 2 NMS stocks’’) and OTC Equity Securities is published on a four-week delayed basis. FINRA also publishes aggregate weekly non-ATS volume totals by firm and category of security (Tier 1 NMS stocks, Tier 2 NMS stocks, and OTC Equity Securities) on the same timeframes, as well as aggregate non-ATS volume totals by firm for all NMS stocks and OTC Equity Securities, for each calendar month on a one-month delayed basis.9 All data is published by firm on an attributed basis 10 except that, for firms executing fewer than 200 non-ATS transactions per day on average during the reporting period,11 FINRA combines and publishes the volume for these firms on an aggregate non-attributed basis identified in the published data as ‘‘De Minimis Firms.’’ 12 FINRA has proposed to expand, in two ways, the summary firm data relating to non-ATS OTC equity trading that FINRA publishes on its website. First, FINRA would publish new 144(a)(3). See FINRA Rule 6420(k); 17 CFR 230.144(a)(3). 7 FINRA Rules 6110(b) and 6610(b) govern the publication of information for OTC transactions executed outside of an ATS (‘‘non-ATS’’ volume data or information). FINRA Rules 6110(c) and 6610(c) separately govern the publication of trading information for OTC transactions executed on ATSs. 8 OTC transaction volume data published pursuant to FINRA Rules 6110 and 6610 is available at https://otctransparency.finra.org/ otctransparency/. 9 Monthly aggregated data are categorized by NMS stocks and OTC Equity Securities, i.e., there is no differentiation between Tier 1 NMS stocks and Tier 2 NMS stocks. 10 Non-ATS data is published at the firm level, aggregating each market participant identifier (‘‘MPID’’) used by a particular firm (but excluding any MPIDs used by a firm to report trades executed on its ATS). 11 For a firm with multiple non-ATS MPIDs, the total volume across all its MPIDs is combined for purposes of determining whether the de minimis threshold has been met. 12 There is no parallel de minimis exception for ATS transactions under FINRA Rules 6110(c) and 6610(c). Therefore, all ATS volume data is currently published on an attributed basis. E:\FR\FM\23AUN1.SGM 23AUN1
