Proposed amendments to the Universal Market Integrity Rules will introduce two new order designations: bundled order designation and derivative-related cross designation. These proposed amendments are intended to enhance trading transparency and improve efficiency. The proposed amendments will also modify the bypass order marker to a private marker if the applicable bypass order is not part of a designated trade. Bypass order markers are currently public markers – this proposed amendment is intended to prevent leaks to the public.
