The Bank of England examines evidence from the UK equity market of high-frequency trading behaviour and its impact on market quality

Authors Evangelos Benos and Satchit Sagade analyse the intraday behaviour of high-frequency traders (HFTs) and their impact on aspects of market quality such as liquidity, price discovery and excess volatility.

the bank of england would be better off examining the total lack of market supervision by its exchange regulators .

We are finally admitting the abuse that has torn our markets confidence and until we have regulators who are independent our mkts will suffer .

Since 2003 we have watched  washed trades ; crossing ; flipping , and despite constant complaints we have been informed of improved liquidity and volume when infact our markets are at their lowest ebb in decades . Perhaps the bank of england are not the right house to intervene ?
