07:28 EDTBLK, RY, NDAQ, TROW, ICESEC officials weighing curbs on trading fees, WSJ says
SEC officials, including some commissioners, are considering a trial program to curb "maker-taker" fee plans that are a major source of revenue for exchanges and some high-frequency trading firms, according to The Wall Street Journal. Fund managers, including BlackRock (BLK), are concerned about the negative effects of maker-taker, the report added. IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) CEO Jeffrey Sprecher, along with representatives from T. Rowe Price (TROW) and from RBC Capital (RY), recently held a series of private meetings with SEC Chairman Mary Jo White to push for its elimination, according to the report, citing people familiar with the matter. Like IntercontinentalExchange, which owns the New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq (NDAQ) is a publicly-traded exchange operator. Reference Link
