On August 6, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority proposed an expansion of its Order Audit Trail System (OATS) to include the trading of all national market system securities (NMS stocks) on all national securities exchanges. Currently, FINRA requires all of its members to record in electronic form and report to OATS on a daily basis order, trade and quote information for all over-the-counter trades and NMS stocks listed on NASDAQ. From this information OATS creates a time-sequenced record of orders and transactions, which is then used by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the national exchanges and securities associations (SROs) to conduct surveillance and investigations for potential violations of federal securities laws and exchange/association rules.
