The Options Symbology Initiative (OSI) is an industry plan to change the symbology used in representing options listed contracts. The OSI is being coordinated by Options Clearing Corporation (OCC). As a result of this initiative, DTN will be changing its Options symbology for all DTN platforms and begin disseminating the new equity and index symbol format in accordance with the OCC and Options Symbology Initiative.


OCC Implementation Schedule:
• September 2009 - January 2010 - Scripted industry testing of the new environment under OSI pre and post symbol consolidation.
• February 12, 2010 - Mandatory cut-over for use of explicit data elements by all market participants .OPRA codes become obsolete and will be suppressed from all data interfaces on this date. (Symbols will not be consolidated at this time but all explicit data elements must be used).
• March 2010 – May 2010 – Execution of the symbol consolidation strategy that mitigates operational risk and ensures an efficient consolidation of all open interest.

Anticipated DTN implementation date: January 30, 2010
