    ESMA Updates MIFID II Trading Halts Procedure

    December 19, 2017

    ESMA updated the trading halts procedure for Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II). ESMA published the revised procedure and template to be used by national competent authorities for reporting the parameters used by trading venues under their jurisdiction for halting trading; this is in accordance with Article 48(5) of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II). The first reports were meant to be received by ESMA by the end of January 2018 and the revised instructions now clarify that this report should be sent to ESMA by the end of June 2018.

    The reporting template has been amended with the objective to reduce, to the extent possible, fields with free text and replace those fields with hard-coded input. This is to facilitate extraction, computation, and, ultimately, the analysis of the files. ESMA understands that certain trading venues may already have started to calibrate the reporting of their parameters based on the July 2017 template. ESMA, therefore, considered it appropriate to publish, along with the revised template, a revised procedure postponing by six months the delivery of the first report to ESMA.
