High Frequency Trading After Barclays: What's Next?

, New York Law Journal


In his Corporate Securities column, John C. Coffee Jr., the Adolf A. Berle Professor of Law at Columbia University Law School and Director of its Center on Corporate Governance, writes: The transition to dark pools, high frequency trading, and the maker/taker model has come since the adoption of Regulation NMS in 2007. That is one cause, but not the deepest cause. With the privatization of securities markets, markets are no longer self regulators in any meaningful sense, but instead are aggressive profit maximizers. That cannot be changed, but it states the case for closer regulation.
