November 2011 - PwC comments on the expected significant impact of the SEC's new 'Large Trader Rule,' which went into effect in October 2011.

In July 2011, the SEC adopted a new rule and accompanying form to establish a method for the SEC to identify large traders, obtain trading information for such traders and analyze such activity. The "Large Trader Rule" became effective October 3, 2011. The new rule will have significant impact on large traders, as well as on the sell-side firms that interact with large traders.
