FIA PTG responds to Nasdaq proposal to add additional order types

8 March 2023

In a letter filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the FIA Principal Traders Group (FIA PTG) opposed Nasdaq’s proposal to establish new “Contra Midpoint Only” and “Contra Midpoint Only with Post-Only” order types.

FIA PTG believes that asymmetric information does not result in better markets and for this reason recommended the Commission disapprove this Proposal.
