07:28 EDTBLKSEC 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

13:43 EDTBLKFidelity to pitch new lost cost trading venue to large asset managers, WSJ says
Fidelity is working on a new trading venue, dubbed "Sakura," that it hopes will be a collaboration among big mutual-fund firms to reduce costs and streamline trading and will be an improvement over other "dark pools," reported The Wall Street Journal, citing people with knowledge of the matter. The report said Fidelity is in the initial planning stages and has just started pitching the idea to other large asset managers. Publicly traded fund managers include BlackRock (BLK), Franklin Resources (BEN) and T. Rowe Price (TROW), while Investment Technology Group (ITG) currently operates dark pools that facilitate block trading among large institutions. Exchange operators Nasdaq (NDAQ) and Intercontinentalexchange's (ICE) NYSE have previously testified to legislators that too much trading occurs in dark pools, hurting investors. Reference Link
