09:06 EDTETFC, SCHW, NDAQ, AMTDSEC still struggling for data, slow to move on HFT, Bloomberg says
Despite a sharp increase in attention to high-frequency trading sparked by the publication of Michael Lewis’s "Flash Boys," the SEC's Mary Jo White is in no rush to make rule changes, saying reforms must be supported by data and focus on the entire market, not just speed traders, reported Bloomberg.

Shares of exchange owner Nasdaq (NDAQ) and brokerage firms E-Trade (ETFC), TD Ameritrade (AMTD), Charles Schwab (SCHW) have been weak in recent sessions amid the heightened newsflow related to HFT concerns.
