Market Structure & COVID-19: Handling Increased Volatility and Volumes

Market volatility in recent weeks has surpassed anything else in history in terms of both the extremity and duration. Despite that, the so-called plumbing of U.S. financial markets has held up remarkably well—even with most market participants working from home. On this episode, we talk to FINRA’s Executive Vice President of Market Regulation and Transparency Services Tom Gira, who walks us through the evolution of our market structure that has contributed to this resilience and how FINRA and others are handling the increased volumes. Resources mentioned in this episode:COVID-19 Resource PageCOVID-19 FAQsEpisode 13: How the Cloud and Machine Learning Have Transformed FINRA Market Surveillance
