Certain Statistical Information on Transaction Patterns in the Municipal
The Board has released certain statistical information on transaction patterns in the municipal securities market.
Questions about this notice may be directed to Harold L. Johnson, Deputy General Counsel.
On January 19, 2000, the Board released certain statistical information on transaction patterns in the municipal securities market. These data are based on trade information submitted to the MSRB’s Transaction Reporting System for the period May 1998 – April 1999. Dealers are required to submit information on all their municipal securities trades with customers and with other dealers to the MSRB by midnight on trade date.
The MSRB is releasing these data so that all market participants can have a better understanding of the arena in which they operate. The MSRB is not providing an analysis of the data, allowing users to develop their own interpretations of the information. The MSRB notes that these data cover a single, one-year period and that data for other time periods may or may not be substantially different from those being released today. The MSRB expects to release additional data in the future.
The data is available on the Board’s web site at www.msrb.org (click on the What’s New link). The information can be viewed on screen or downloaded into Excel. Click on the tabs at the bottom of the screen to view the various reports.
