Amendments to Alternative Display Facility Rules Proposed. On July 26th, the SEC provided notice of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority's filing of a proposed amendment to FINRA Rules 6271 and 6272 regarding the requirements for members seeking registration as FINRA Alternative Display Facility ("ADF") Market Participants. The proposed rule change would consolidate into a single rule the existing requirements that a member must meet to register as an ADF Market Participant and introduce new requirements that potential ADF Market Participants must meet to participate on the ADF. These new requirements are intended to mitigate the substantial financial risks to FINRA of accelerating the migration of the ADF onto the Multi Product Platform or of building out the ADF base platform to accommodate an ADF Market Participant. Comments should be submitted on or before August 22, 2013. SEC Release No. 34-70048.
