As with the DSB monthly metrics for July, the FIRDS snapshot for July month-end, broadly showed continuation of existing behaviours with an 11% increase in the number of OTC ISINs reported to FIRDS for reference data purposes.
Systematic Internalisers, MTFs and OTFs continued to report similar proportions of OTC ISINs for each asset class, with SIs dominating equities reference data reporting and the venues more focused on FX and Rates reference data reporting as set out below.
Unsurprisingly, the largest increase in the reporting of reference data was seen in Equities, FX and Rates – with a slight change in the product mix vs. last month end.
As with prior months, there is little reference data reporting for commodities in general, with OTFs continuing to dominate this arena. A detailed breakdown for every DSB product reported to FIRDS (for reference data purposes) is set out below.
Two new MICs reported reference data to FIRDS in July, one OTF and one SI respectively. The usual MIC level analysis is set out below.
