The buy unit is a supported enterprise that has created a system for tracking markets giving to it an advantage not found by another organization. The manner in which the platform was designed is unique (enough) where the organization uses the method to lease business intelligence. The scope in which the organization has founded the trading technologies could be shredded or forced to disintegrate altogether!
Three organizations in the United States will ultimately determine if technologies should be regulated: Securities Exchange Commission, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, and Congress. Each of these units have the authority where, if not a change is authorized to alter the scope of trading technologies, a recommendation can be issued to Congress by the SEC, or the CFTC declaring trading technologies should be regulated. The actions of these government commissions only increase or add to the complexity of existing regulation. Such a recommendation is not far off, and is becoming closer to realization!
The public sector is advanced access to trading markets from the sell arm, but indices and mutual fund companies are without this advantage while depending acute business intelligence practices that track market performance to create an advantage. The market is moved by the two sides while it’s an abomination to presume regulating the trading technology. The buy side is permitted to produce any legal method of business intelligence to provide or increase profits. However, this is not merely the point!
The buy side is a business underlining the importance of market tracking, and business intelligence. Mutual funds and indices very existence is based on the performance of their founded trading technology. Legally the organization isn’t bound to allow public access to the information, but, the information serves more a purpose in leasing the intelligence data either to affiliated or associated subsidiaries. The buy side platform data is market data used several times over by secondary and third markets. Regulation will no doubt alter the strategies of funds, and indices!
Many of the laws enacted to govern financial trade today are rhetorical and repetitive. The acts that follow to pin down fraudulent acts don’t always provide a means to an end. In fact, the regulatory government commissions had added to the decrease of fraudulent behavior through proactively monitoring the sell side. However, the sell side is more stable in resources due to larger backers, and riders. The buy side is often without these resources.
