MSRB LAUNCHES TWITTER FEED TO DISSEMINATE MUNICIPAL MARKET NEWS
Alexandria, VA – Effective today, the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) will begin using Twitter to further disseminate to the public updates on municipal market regulation, as well as information about municipal market transparency and the MSRB’s Electronic Municipal Market Access (EMMA) website.
The MSRB’s twitter feed, @MSRB_News, will be periodically updated with municipal market news so followers can stay informed about key developments that could affect investors and municipal entities in the $3.7 trillion municipal market.
In addition to regulating the municipal market, the MSRB operates EMMA, an online, centralized database that provides free public access to municipal market data and documents. EMMA also provides real-time trade data for outstanding municipal bonds and current interest rates for auction rate securities and variable rate demand obligations.
The MSRB will continue to announce municipal market news and updates through press releases, regulatory notices and emails to subscribers.
