FSA e-trading probe

The Financial Services Authority is starting its consultation process on how the alternative share trading systems and electronic exchanges should be regulated.


The consultation comes amid a movement away from traditional stock exchanges to electronic communications networks.


One of the regulator&#39s concern is how fund manages and equity trading houses can offer the best price available, which could involve checking all electronic price sources.


The regulations resulting from the inquiry are likely to be implemented at the second half of this year.
