T1:00C How is Regulation Changing Access to US and European Markets?

Continental C
Regulators in Europe and the U.S. are working to implement regulations that protect markets from disruptive or manipulative trading. Algorithmic traders are increasingly subject to requirements to implement extensive pre-trade risk controls, to ensure that their trading applications are thoroughly tested and their procedures are properly documented and publicized internally, and to register with regulatory authorities. In addition, exchanges and brokers providing access are being required to implement new layers of controls and to provide increasing oversight into the details of the algorithms driving trading. While these regulations are designed to make markets safer, they are also making it more costly and complex for traders to access markets directly or even through a broker's infrastructure. This panel will discuss some of the key changes resulting from recent regulatory initiatives such as MIFID II, Regulation AT, and FINRA's requirement to register developers of algorithmic trading strategies and suggest approaches traders might take to minimize the burden of the new requirements.
