By Chuck Mikolajczak New York City (Reuters) – The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is preparing to act on a questionable demand by brand-new trading group IEX Group Inc to launch a new U.S. public stock market, and has actually received a recommendation from its personnel that it approve the exchange, according to a Wall Street Journal report on Tuesday. The proposed exchange from IEX, made popular by the Michael Lewis book “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt,” is noteworthy since it would be the only one in the United States to consist of a so-called “speed bump” – a 350 millionths-of-a-second delay in all inbound and outcoming orders. The theory behind that, according to IEX, is that it protects financiers from high-frequency traders who can detect trading signals and use their faster technology to electronically front-run slower financiers. Other exchanges, consisting of Nasdaq (O:-RRB-, the New York Stock Exchange (N:-RRB- and BATS Worldwide Markets (Z:-RRB- have actually been vocal in their opposition to an IEX approval. Nasdaq has actually recommended that any SEC approval could be challenged. The SEC is dealing with a June 18 due date to act on the IEX proposal. An internal source told Reuters that the commission wanted to see competition to the existing design of electronic trading and order execution, and was not likely to miss that due date. The WSJ report stated the commission was most likely to vote on the order Friday and that approval was most likely.
