(February 1, 2013, New York) European Union lawmakers are renewing calls for tougher curbs on high-frequency trading and limits on commodity speculation as part of a push to toughen the 27-nation bloc’s financial-market rulebook. How is this going to impact speed trading? The answers will be debated at High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013 London ( www.High-Frequency-Trading-Conference.com), "Strategic and Tactical Insights for Investors, Speed Traders, Brokers and Exchanges", this March 21 in London.
Michel Barnier, the EU’s financial services chief, proposed the measures last year. The parliament and EU member states must hammer out an agreement before the steps take effect. By contrast, the U.K. government’s lead scientific adviser, John Beddington, this week warned against implementing some of the curbs on
high-frequency trading, saying they may choke off benefits to the economy and hamper the functioning of markets. Markus Ferber, the German lawmaker steering the bill through the EU parliament, has said the curbs are needed to ensure that high-frequency trading brings genuine benefits to markets and doesn’t cause instability.
European Parliament legislators have already defined the assembly’s stance before talks on the proposals begin with national governments. They have also agreed to largely scrap proposals to boost competition between clearinghouses, saying the measures may harm financial stability. Rules backed by the assembly include a requirement for traders to hold orders in the market for at least half a second and punitive fees for excessive numbers of canceled orders.
