On November 26th, BATS Global Markets announced the availability of risk management tools to all members of its U.S. equities and equity option markets. The free, customizable port-level risk management tools will allow members to set critical parameters for orders and prevent unwanted executions. Some of the key features of the risk management tools include the ability to set order restrictions, maximum per-order limits, and order cutoffs, or a member controlled "kill switch," which would cancel all open orders and block new orders.
