Anyways, it was reassuring to start the week with another "wow is that what they really meant?" moment whilst gorging on the never-ending box set known as MiFID 2. This time it's about the obligations on b...

Brexit hangover

Christian made some good points as usual, inc...

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?

07 April 2016  |  7110 views  |  0 comments | recommendations Recommends 0

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...

Has the futures industry just been Uberised?

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...

Slicing up the merger mania cake

09 March 2016  |  7496 views  |  0 comments | recommendations Recommends 0

The train on platform MiFID 2 is delayed by one year

25 November 2015  |  4326 views  |  0 comments | recommendations Recommends 0

Not surprising to see that it now looks odds-on that we’ll get a full one year delay on the implementation of MiFID 2. This will embarrass the politicians who don’t want to be seen as going soft on th...
