MiFID revision and market abuse: Commission tables new rules for more sound and trasparent financial markets

Financial markets

The European Commission has tabled proposals to revise the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID). These proposals consist of a Directive and a Regulation and aim to make financial markets more efficient and transparent, in particular by improving the oversight of less regulated markets and by addressing the issue of excessive price volatility in commodity derivatives markets. The Commission has also proposed a Regulation on market abuse and a Directive to ensure effective sanctions at European level for insider dealing and market manipulation.
