In the second part of our two-part series on options and equity market structure, we are rejoined by Andrew Shultz, Head of Strategic Options Business at Susquehanna International Group, and Mett Kinak, Global Head of Equity Trading at T. Rowe Price Group. In this episode, Mett's feet are put to the fire with respect to SEC Chair Gary Gensler's proposed equity market structure reforms. Mett weighs in on whether auctions modelled after options market structure can be repurposed for retail equity trading. He also raises concerns about potential tick increment reforms, proposed changes that should steer away from one-size-fits-all solutions, and the harmonization of traded prices across all types of venues.
