  • Starting on the afternoon of May 4, 2020, LMR will begin releasing report data on LMR Datamart, LMR Web Service and the LMR API in real time. Prior to this change, report data was available at the top of the hour for most reports. The removal of Text reports on LMR necessitated this change. This change will bring both voluntary and mandatory report release processes in sync.
  • Note: With this change, there will be a few minutes delay for the actual PDF report to be uploaded to the AMS website and MyMarketNews. That will be resolved in the coming month.

  • Recent security patching of LMR servers on 04.16.20 has caused technical problems with Text Report generation. PDF report generation remains operational. Over the course of the last few days, an attempt to resolve this issue was undertaken without success. The security protocols have been re-enabled on the LMR server and text reports will no longer be offered.
