The information to be disclosed and other matters for compliance, unless otherwise provided by laws and regulations, shall be determined by the self-regulatory rules of the securities dealers association.
    The promotional materials that a securities firm provides to non-professional investors regarding its brokered trading services shall be clear, fair, and shall not be misleading to customers.
