MMB 8E is the best mm could hope. Uniquely the E suffix was only issued for 7 months from Jan 1 1967 to Jul 31, the F reg and subsequent were from Aug 1st - the car manufacturers wanted to avoid the huge peak and trough with the year letter corresponding to the calendar year. There are more unissued E suffix registrations potentially available for release now as a result. (Bet you wish you hadn't asked now Investor55!)
09:43. Thanks for the info Brom. I'm wondering if the rules have changed at all. Looking at the link you posted, the version of the rules is less than a year old. I must admit it is some while since I referred to them.
What I'm sure was always referred to as Normal Market Size (NMS) now seems to have become Exchange Market Size (EMS). I'll have to add that to the growing list of things such as countries, diseases, medical procedures, job descriptions etc that have been renamed over the years.
My understanding is large trades are 'worked' and therefore often take time to complete. Supposedly the MMs are obliged to quote and deal at 'Normal market size' and this could mean them being either short or long from what is basically a flat position.
