The Market Identifier Code (MIC)(ISO 10383) is a unique identification code used to identify securities trading exchanges, regulated and non-regulated trading markets.
The MIC is a four alpha-character code used to identify stock markets and other trading exchanges within the global trading and referencing computer systems. It is defined in ISO 10383 by International Organization for Standardization (ISO).The code is used to process and clear trades, and is being pushed toward global acceptance as the securities industries move toward straight-through-processing (STP). The London Stock Exchange uses MICs as part of its SEDOL security-identifying systems, which is an alternative to the U.S.-based CUSIP identifying system.
