)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: FINRA’s Guidance for Securities Traders Using Algorithmic Trading Strategies: A Perspective in 2016 Live Webcast. This two-hour event is scheduled on October 27, 2015 @ 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM ET.
Today, Algorithmic Trading Strategies account for a substantial portion of market analysis on US securities markets. The potential for such methods to affect the market are substantial. As a result, in March 2015, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposed an amendment to Rule 15b9-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requiring active proprietary securities trading firms to become members of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). The current rule has allowed many firms that operate a proprietary trading business to avoid FINRA regulation.
FINRA also proposed enhancing regulatory oversight of members involved in high frequency trading. It would require all members involved in the design, development, or modification of algorithmic trading strategies to register as Securities Traders and be regulated. The guidance covers risk assessment and response, trading systems, regulatory compliance, and software and code development and implementation, testing, and validation.
This live Knowledge Group CLE course offers securities market participants an overview of the latest trends, critical updates, and important changes in FINRA’s Administration Guidance for Securities Traders Using Algorithmic Trading Strategies. The panel of distinguished professionals will discuss the implications of the latest regulatory notice guidance and offer best practices to ensure compliance with FINRA rules.
