10:20 EDTNDAQ, ICENew York AG calls for new efforts to end high-frequency trading advantages
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman called for tougher regulations and market reforms intended to eliminate what he called the unfair advantages commonly provided to high-frequency trading firms at the expense of other investors. Schneiderman detailed a number of services that trading venues offer to high-frequency traders and the damaging impact of those services on the rest of the market. Those services, "which in the hands of predatory high-frequency traders distort our markets," include allowing traders to locate their computer servers within trading venues themselves; providing extra network bandwidth to high-frequency traders; and attaching ultra-fast connection cables and special high-speed switches to their servers, the AG said. Each of these services offers clients a timing advantage often in milliseconds that allows high-frequency traders to make rapid and often risk-free trades before the rest of the market can react, Schneiderman added. To address this imbalance in the markets, which now tilt in favor of high-frequency traders, Attorney General Schneiderman today called on the exchanges and other regulators to review the feasibility of certain market structure reforms that could help eliminate some of the fundamental unfairness in our markets. One detailed proposal would seek to correct this imbalance by processing orders in batches in frequent intervals, to ensure that price not speed is the deciding factor in who obtains a trade. Publicly-traded companies that own exchanges include Nasdaq (NDAQ) and IntercontinentalExchange (ICE), which owns the New York Stock Exchange. Reference Link

08:23 EDTICE, NDAQSEC may consider rule change, allowing IEX to be exchange, Reuters says
IEX Group, which was described in Michael Lewis' book "Flash Boys" as a place for investors to place buy and sell orders without worrying that they are being "front-run" by high-speed traders, may be aided in its goal of becoming a full-fledged stock exchange as the SEC may revisit rules that require the fastest possible execution of securities trades, said Reuters, citing a person familiar with the SEC's thinking. Publicly traded stock exchange owners include NASDAQ (NDAQ), IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) and BATS Global Markets (BATS). Reference Link

06:48 EDTNDAQNASDAQ appoints BNY Mellon to provide U.S. Treasury clearing, custody
BNY Mellon (BK) has been appointed by NASDAQ OMX Clearing (NDAQ) to provide EMIR, or European Market Infrastructure Regulation, compliant clearing and custody services for U.S. Treasuries within the NASDAQ OMX Group's new European clearing business. The new mandate extends BNY Mellon's existing relationship with NASDAQ OMX - it was appointed by the exchange as a cash settlement bank in 2013 - and reinforces BNY Mellon's position as a leading custodial service provider to central counterparties, or CCPs. Both EMIR and the Dodd-Frank legislation in the U.S. mandate the migration of over-the-counter derivatives from bilateral clearance to CCPs.
