    ESMA Updates Bond Transparency Calculations for MiFID II and MiFIR

    April 18, 2018

    ESMA updated the MiFID II and MiFIR transitional transparency calculations (TTC) for bonds. The update relates to the liquidity assessment for bond instruments, except for Exchange Traded Commodities (ETCs) and Exchange Traded Notes (ETNs). Trading venues are expected to apply the new results from April 23, 2018.

    The liquidity assessment of bonds, except ETCs and ETNs, is based on Tables 2.1 and 2.2 in Annex III of RTS 2, which can be referred to in the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/583 of July 14, 2016 on the regulatory technical standards on transparency requirements for trading venues and investment firms in respect of bonds, structured finance products, emission allowances, and derivatives. ESMA was delegated by the national competent authorities to perform the TTC for the ISINs that traded over the reference period August 01 to October 31, 2017. For bond instruments, traded for the first time on a trading venue between November 01, 2017 and January 02, 2018 (included), national competent authorities have submitted, to ESMA, the applicable TTC for which the national competent authorities are in charge and did not delegate this task to ESMA. ESMA has compiled the data with utmost care.
