IOSCO has written to the Financial Stability Board, explaining that it is consulting on how technological developments affect market integrity and efficiency. The consultation looks at various micro-structural issues that can affect the markets, in particular but not only high-frequency trading. It considers how these affect market disciplines such as conflicts of interest and risk and trading controls. It wants to make recommendations to address these issues and asks for comments by 12 August. (Source: IOSCO Consults on Technological Developments and Markets)
