FINRA CAT Meeting Links on FIF Calendar

Instead of sending Outlook invites on FINRA CAT's behalf for their checkpoint calls and webinars, FIF will post all FINRA CAT calls and webinars on the FIF Calendar located here: https://fif.com/index.php/calendar. Clicking on the FINRA CAT placeholder on the FIF calendar will reveal the specific FINRA CAT meeting URL where you will find the dial-in information, materials (usually uploaded right before the call) and option to save the meeting to your personal calendar. Another way to keep ontop of FINRA CAT meetings would be to simply bookmark and regularly check: https://catnmsplan.com/events

Guidance from FINRA CAT on Fully-Executed or Cancelled Orders

On September 3rd, FINRA CAT issued a FAQ that Industry Members are not required to report an Order Modification Request or Order Cancel Request event to CAT in Phase 2d to the extent an order has already been fully executed or cancelled. However, reporting of this activity may be required in future phases of CAT. This is a positive result as FIF members were concerned about the system changes that would have been required for reporting these events to CAT.
