F ederal reserve Ba n k DALLAS, TEXAS of Dallas 75222 Circular No. 71-82 April 8 , 1971 INFORMATION ON OTC MARKET MAKERS (Regulation U) To All Banks in the Eleventh Federal Reserve District: The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System has until recently published a periodic list of securities firms that have filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission as OTC Market Makers, and the OTC Margin Stocks in which each firm is qualified. The list was published to assist banks in extending credit under section 221.3(w) of Regulation U, the OTC Market Maker Exemption. The Board has now determined that it is not economically justifiable to continue publishing this list due to the relatively small demand, the length of the list, and the frequency of changes. Consequently, the list is being discontinued. Should any bank desire information as to whether a firm is currently qualified as an OTC Market Maker, and as to the OTC Margin Stocks in which the firm is qualified, this may now be obtained by telephoning or writing the Regulations Department of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas at our Dallas office. The telephone number is Area Code 214, 742-3271, Ext. 257. Yours very truly, P. E. Coldwell President This publication was digitized and made available by the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas' Historical Library (FedHistory@dal.frb.org)
