On March 9th, the SEC provided notice of FINRA's proposal to extend certain protections of SEC Regulation NMS to OTC Equity Securities, which are not subject to Regulation NMS. The new rules would restrict sub-penny quoting, restrict locked and cross markets, place a cap on access fees, and require the display of customer limit orders. Comments should be submitted within 21 days after publication in the Federal Register, which is expected during the week of March 15. SEC Release No. 34-61677.
