New data service assembles equity options position limits, reporting levels, and aggregated contracts data for all U.S., as well as major European and Asian exchanges to help firms meet new compliance and reporting duties.
 
Oct. 25, 2011 - PRLog -- The Institute for Financial Markets (IFM) has launched a new data service called the Equity Options Position Limits Databank (or EOPLD) to help compliance staffs globally meet increased surveillance and reporting duties.  The data service is available to banks, futures commission merchants, trading,clearing and investment firms, and provides essential information needed to set trading parameters, monitor intra-day trading and fulfill reporting obligations.  More importantly, it helps users guard against violations, trading suspensions, regulatory action, disgorgement or fines that may be imposed for exceeding limits.

In one central global repository, the EOPLD assembles individual equity options position limits, reporting levels, if applicable, and aggregated contracts data for all U.S., as well as major European and Asian exchanges. The EOPLD is a natural extension of the IFM's Position Limits Databank, a one-of-a kind data reference storehouse in use since 2009, and relied upon by globally by market participants and regulators.  All position limits data is updated on a daily basis and provided to in HTML, ASCII, and XML formats.
