On September 4, in response to a new request from the Financial Information Forum and the Security Traders Association, the SEC extended the compliance deadline for Rule 606 amendments. This represents the second extension for the routing practices regulation, which was first proposed in November 2018 with an original deadline of May 2019, and subsequently delayed to October 2019.
