12:30 PM Oxford Style Debate – Speed bumps on European exchanges are beneficial to the market as they add liquidity and give market makers more protection and opportunities to take on more risk - TRUE or FALSE?

Hear from both sides of the argument, including the European venue Eurex who are currently trialling speed bumps in the derivatives markets, alongside the US trading firm MANA Partners, arguing against the French regulator on how they are detrimental to the market.

  • How have speed bumps at some European exchanges impacted the market? Harmful or beneficial?
  • What are the parameters for evaluating the effectiveness of these mechanisms?
  • How do these speed bumps stand up against MiFID II regarding pre-trade transparency, fair and orderly trading, access, best execution, and access to market data?
  • How do speedbumps add more liquidity to markets?
