Trade Reporting: SEC Approves FINRA Rule Requiring Alternative Trading Systems to Report Activity Weekly

US-registered broker-dealers that operate Alternative Trading Systems will have to report volume information, by security, to FINRA weekly. The first report, for the week of May 12, 2014, is due May 28, 2014. ATS will, by November, require their own separate Market Participant Identifier (or “MPID”).
