Recent FINRA Rule Filings

When FINRA decides to change or modify any of its rules, or to add a new rule, it is required to provide notice to its members regarding the modification or addition and to allow for comment. It does this by a Notice of Rule Filing, which is published at its website. Here are the most recent Rule Filings:
