Trading and Technology

By Gregory Bresiger

Annette Nazareth, the SEC's market regulation director pulls no punches on the role of trading technology. "My own bias is why not allow investors to get the best price if it is available," she said. Nazareth was speaking at the STA's Washington conference on Reg NMS.
