Abstract

The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago has published extensively on the risks and effects of high-frequency trading (HFT) in U.S. financial markets and has in the past expressed an interest in the concept of batch auctions as a potential way to diminish the speed advantage of HFT traders. The Chicago Stock Exchange (CHX) recently filed an application with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to inaugurate CHX SNAP, an on-demand batch auction service. If and when approved, SNAP auctions would deemphasize speed and allow institutional traders to place large orders, with a reduced risk that information leakage results in adverse price movements against them.
