NASDAQ OMX to Modify Population Logic for Trade Control Number on NLS and NLS Plus
What you need to know:
What is changing?
At the request of the FINRA/NASDAQ Trade Reporting Facility (TRF), NASDAQ OMX will populate the Trade Control Number field on the NASDAQ Last Sale (NLS) and NLS Plus proprietary data feeds for TRF transactions with a Regional Reference Number beginning Tuesday, September 4, 2012. The Regional Reference Number will be an alphanumeric token assigned by the FINRA/NASDAQ TRF for transaction tracking purposes. The Regional Reference Number will replace the ACT Control Number currently being used for TRF trades on NLS and NLS Plus.
Please Note: The Regional Reference Number will adhere to the defined field format for the Trade Control Number. NASDAQ OMX is only changing its back office processing to populate the field for the September 4th release.
