In January this year, the GXFC Working Group on Algorithmic Trading and Transaction Cost Analysis (TCA) set out four areas of focus in the context of ongoing Global Code review:
• TCA and data availability:
• Control mechanisms and liability around use of execution algorithms
• dentifying and managing conflicts of interest by Market Participants providing algorithmic trading services
• Improving disclosures and user education in the context of on-going review of the FX Global Code.

Join us on 4 March to hear from front line market experts on proposed regulatory and governance changes to algorithmic trading and the potential impact of these on market participants.
