T2:15C What Clients Need to Know About the Changing E-trading Rules
Electronic trading used to be considered one of the easiest ways that an FCM could do business, especially when it was a simple as point-and-click using a screen that the FCM provided and had total control over. However the landscape has changed, and the buy-side is using a variety of trading tools that they either develop themselves or are provided by 3rd party vendors and brokers. With the evolution of trading tools comes an evolution of e-trading rules, covering everything from identifying traders and operators of an ATS, keeping audit trails, calculating message ratios and prohibiting disruptive practices. Not only do FCMs that facilitate e-trading need to understand differing rules across exchanges and jurisdictions, they also need to be able to advise and monitor their clients for compliance. How does this change the way both buy-side and sell-side conduct their e-trading?
