ESMA revised opinions on transactions on third-country trading venues
ESMA has published revised opinions covering third-country trading venues for post trade transparency and position limits under MiFID II / MiFIR. The opinions state that, pending an ESMA’s review of more than 200 third-country trading venues, transactions on third-country trading venues do not need to be made post-trade transparent, and/or positions held in those third-country venue contracts are not considered to be economically equivalent over-the-counter contracts.
It is expected that ESMA will review the third-country trading venues and publish the results in 2018.
