MAR 6.9 Publication of quotes

MAR 6.9.1R

Where a publication obligation arises under MAR 6.5.1 R, a systematic internaliser must make its quotes public:

  1. (1)

    on a regular and continuous basis during normal trading hours; and

  2. (2)

    in a manner which is easily accessible to other market participants on a reasonable commercial basis.

[Note: Subparagraphs 1 and 2 of Article 27(3) of MiFID]

MAR 6.9.2EU

1.

A regulated market, MTF or systematic internaliser shall be considered to publish pre-trade information on a continuous basis during normal trading hours if that information is published as soon as it becomes available during the normal trading hours of the regulated market, MTF or systematic internaliser concerned, and remains available until it is updated.

2.

Pre-trade information, and post-trade information relating to transactions taking place within normal trading hours, shall be made available as close to real time as possible. Post-trade information relating to such transactions shall be made available in any case within three minutes of the relevant transaction.

3.

Information relating to a portfolio trade shall be made available with respect to each constituent transaction as close to real time as possible, having regard to the need to allocate prices to particular shares. Each constituent transaction shall be assessed separately for the purposes of determining whether deferred publication in respect of the transaction is available under Article 28 [of the MiFID Regulation].

[Note: Article 29(1) to (3) of the MiFID Regulation]

MAR 6.9.3EU

Information which is required to be made available as close to real time as possible should be made available as close to instantaneously as technically possible, assuming a reasonable level of efficiency and of expenditure on systems on the part of the person concerned. The information should only be published close to the three minute maximum limit in exceptional cases where the systems available do not allow for a publication in a shorter period of time.
