Where will liquidity come from?


A review of the impact from high frequency trading, and new regulation on the role of liquidity providers. Despite exchanges’ capacity to process vast amount of quotes at ever faster speeds, liquidity in some markets is still confined to fraction of the instruments listed.  In some markets, traders prefer to negotiate on the periphery of the exchange, dealing bilaterally on exchange-listed instruments. What measures can exchanges use to attract this liquidity, and are the infrastructure costs and new rules well adapted to present and future market needs?
