Bumpy road ahead?

Interesting story in the FT today about IEX and its application to become a fully-fledged exchange. At issue is IEX’s so-called 'speed bump' that will slow down the HFT 'boy racers' and so make market...

Interesting to read that Apple is reportedly deciding when, not if, to cancel music downloads from iTunes. The idea, of course, is to move everyone over to its Apple Music streaming service. This got ...

Clear and present danger?

There has been a lot of talk about how the LSE/DB1 merger might create a "too big to fail" clearing house. This seems to be missing the point somewhat as both LCH and Eurex Clearing are alre...

A seemingly innocuous news item from my good friend John Detrixhe at Bloomberg got us all chatting here at Fidessa Towers this morning. The story was about how Eurex Clearing was going to allow large...

Interesting to read over the weekend that London's mayor Boris Johnson has decided to throw his charismatic and not inconsiderable weight behind the "NO" campaign. Most agree that this shift...

The train on platform MiFID 2 is delayed by one year
