BM&FBovespa has witnessed an increase in high-frequency trading to equalize declines in revenues amid flat markets, Financial Times reports. The exchange is also seeking to implement a new fee structure in the upcoming quarter to reduce charges levied on investors for trading.
The bourse has been investing heavily to draw high-frequency and other automated traders by reducing fees and offering specialist services, including co-location to its matching engine to raise volumes. Last November saw price cuts of up to 70% and progressive discounts, leading to an 11% increase in high-frequency flows.
