Actively Traded Securities Law and Legal Definition

Actively Traded Securities are those securities that have a current worldwide average daily trading volume (ADTV). of at least $1 million and an issuer with common equity securities having a public float value of at least $150 million. This condition is used for an exemption from Regulation M, which restricts the trading of an existing security by participants in a public offering of that security. ADTV is measured during the two full calendar months immediately preceding, or any 60 consecutive calendar days ending within the 10 calendar days preceding, the filing of the registration statement.
