IT – INET Nordic – Changes to post trade counterparty visibility in Nasdaq Nordic main index shares (16/19)

Nasdaq Nordic will introduce a mandatory post trade anonymity (PoTA) for main index shares in order book trading as of April 8, 2019. This means that member counterparty IDs (MPIDs) are not visible in the public trade ticker in trades executed in order book in main index shares. Manual trades1 reported in main index shares continue to follow voluntary post trade anonymity (vPoTA), where member may choose whether it wants its MPID to be displayed or not.

Voluntary post trade anonymity continues to be available for those Large Cap shares that are not index constituents.

Details

MPID is not displayed in order book trades in the following shares per exchange:

  • Nasdaq Stockholm: OMXS30 shares
  • Nasdaq Copenhagen: OMXC25 shares
  • Nasdaq Helsinki: OMXH25 shares

  Manual trades1 in the above index shares will continue with voluntary post trade anonymity. MPID is displayed as default, unless member has opted in for voluntary post trade anonymity model.

Other than main index shares will continue with current counterparty disclosure arrangements:

  • Voluntary post trade anonymity on Nasdaq Nordic Large Cap shares that are not in main indices – MPID is displayed as default, unless member has opted in for voluntary post trade anonymity model either for order book trading only or for both order book trading and Manual trades1.
  • Full counterparty ID visibility in Nasdaq Nordic Mid Cap and Small Cap shares, as well as in First North market shares – MPID is displayed.

Member set-up

PoTA in order book trades in main index shares is mandatory for all members. For other shares, the current counterparty disclosure arrangement where MPID is displayed on the public trade ticker is a default set-up for a member. Members who wish to keep the default set-up on all three Nasdaq Nordic exchanges do not have to take any action.

The table below describes the outcomes for members who have not opted in for vPoTA (Default) and members who have opted in for either full vPoTA (Option 1) or for order book vPoTA only (new Option 2).

Members who wish to have their MPID displayed (Default) do not need to take any action. Their MPID will not be displayed in trades executed in main index shares and continue to be displayed in trades executed in other than main index shares. This is the default set-up for members.

Members may change the default settings via opting in for voluntary counterparty visibility model, which was implemented in 2014. Members who have already opted in for this model (Option 1) do not need to take any action either. Their MPID will not be displayed in trades executed in main index shares and Large Cap shares and continue to be displayed in trades execute in other than main index and Large Cap shares.

As a new option, Option 2, members may choose voluntary post trade anonymity in order books trades in Large Cap shares, but remain visible in Manual trades1 in index shares and Large Cap shares.
