Brattle Economists Comment on Coscia Verdict and Different Approaches to Enforcement in High-Frequency Trading Markets

Brattle principals Paul Hinton and Shaun Ledgerwood have contributed to Practice Points, a publication of the ABA’s Securities Litigation Committee, on the topic of the recent Coscia verdict and enforcement trends in high-frequency trading markets.

The post, “Coscia Verdict Highlights Different Approaches to High-Frequency Trading,” compares the Commodity Futures Trading Commission's (CFTC) enforcement stance on policing markets to deter spoofing activity, to that of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The authors also anticipate a possible new SEC rule and further enforcement activity by the CFTC.

The full post can be read on the ABA's website.
