FIA EPTA response to the LSE consultation on market structure and trading hours

FIA EPTA response to the LSE consultation on market structure and trading hours

31 January 2020 6:30pm EST

FIA EPTA members consider that, generally speaking, the longer hours in Europe do not seem to provide a benefit to market liquidity and observe that the shorter hours in, for example, the U.S. main trading session do not hamper market liquidity. Some FIA EPTA members do consider, however, that the current market hours timing in Europe can be beneficial during periods of heightened volatility (e.g., caused by news events). While the LSE’s current consultation relates to cash equities, FIA EPTA members note that various other trading products have much longer trading hours. However, a majority of FIA EPTA members considers that potential greater divergence between shares and those other products in terms of trading hours would not be problematic (with the exception of equity options and single stock futures).
