Change to Plus Markets MIC

The market operator Plus Stock Exchange plc changed its name to ICAP Securities & Derivatives Exchange Limited. As a result, the ‘XPLU’ MIC will become obsolete with effect from 28 November 2012 and the new MIC ‘ISDX’ will go live. UnaVista will reject any transaction report with a trading venue of ‘XPLU’ in combination with a Trading Date of 28 November 2012 or later.
