AFM Market Watch
Edition 8 - Algorithmic trading
The absolute majority of trades on Dutch capital markets are traded algorithmically. The algorithmic trading universe is vast, divers, complex, and in constant development, and the AFM has made the supervision of algorithmic trading a key area of attention. In the last years, we have looked at the topic of algorithmic trading from different perspectives as algorithms. In this Market Watch we discuss several distinct aspects of algorithmic trading like the underlying terminology, key insights on Dutch capital markets, and potential benefits and risks.
Edition 7 - Benchmarks
Benchmarks are critical to the efficient functioning of financial markets and can be used in various ways. To price financial products, for instance, to serve as reference rates for fund managers, or to increase price transparency for investors. In the 7th edition of our AFM Market Watch, we aim to increase knowledge about the relevance of benchmarks for the financial markets and AFM’s supervisory role vis-à-vis benchmarks.
