In this video from JLN’s annual series with industry leaders, OCC President and Chief Operating Officer John Davidson talks about how the OCC is weighing its cloud vendor options, addressing cybersecurity concerns and the regulatory initiatives on the road ahead.

Is the era of the traditional FCM model coming to an end?

No, at Abaxx Exchange we don’t believe the era of the traditional FCM model is coming to an end, nor should it be. However, the recent Risk.net article “Brokers slam CME over ‘conflict of interest’ in FCM plan’ made us realize that not everyone may feel the same way, and we need to make our case for the raditional FCM model.

Blue Ocean Technologies CEO Brian Hyndman Sees Clear Sailing for ATS in Overnight Trading

Brian Hyndman was recently promoted to CEO of Blue Ocean Technologies, which has developed from a broker-dealer that matched buyers and sellers by phone during the overnight market hours to an ATS that allows Asian investors to trade U.S. stocks electronically during overnight market hours. Hyndman was recently interviewed by John Lothian News about Blue Ocean and his new role.

Hyndman, a longtime Nasdaq executive, joined Blue Ocean to help raise capital to grow the company. He was eventually asked to join Blue Ocean and run it. Before Hyndman joined, the company’s vision was to trade just ETFs; he extended it out to all NMS (National Market System) stocks. Today, Blue Ocean offers trading on more than 12,000 NMS stocks on its platform.

Troy Kane got his start when he was 14 years old working on the trading floors of the Chicago Board of Trade for his mother’s company and clerking for locals. “My first job was to collect the trading cards every 15 minutes and tally up positions,” Kane said. “So if you were wrong, you were usually fired that day, so you better not be wrong. I did that every summer in high school and learned the business from the ground up.”
