By Hal M. Bundrick NEW YORK ( MainStreet)--Enhanced trade information on mortgage-backed securities is being rolled out by FINRA, the largest regulator of U.S. securities firms. The TRACE (Trade Reporting and Compliance Engine) system, established in 2002 as a database of the corporate bond market, will begin offering data on specified pool transactions in agency pass-through mortgage-backed securities and SBA-backed securities. That's an average daily market of some 3,500 trades, totaling $18 billion in par value, according to the regulator. Last year FINRA began offering transaction data for agency pass-through mortgage-backed securities traded "to-be-announced" (TBA). By adding specified trades the system will now cover 90% of the par value traded in all asset- and mortgage-backed securities. Market Data Center starting Monday, July 29. FINRA also recently announced that it is seeking rule amendments with the SEC to offer transactional data on additional types of asset-backed securities, including those backed by credit card receivables, automobile and student loans, and a number of other credits.
