    Upon execution of a SOIF, its details shall be maintained by the operator of the trading venue as specified in the Annex.

    Upon execution of a SOIF, a strategy linked order identification code shall be indicated using the same identification code for all orders connected to the particular strategy. The strategy linked order identification code shall be as specified in field 46 of Table 2 of the Annex.

  3. (3)
