Trading & Markets Counseling

Looking Forward

In 2022, the SEC and other federal agencies will grapple with the regulatory treatment of digital currency. We expect significant regulatory attention to be focused on this area, and possible legislation. Federal regulatory agencies will also be addressing payment for order flow amidst the rise in retail trading in stocks and options. We also expect to see continued interest in short selling activity and a regulatory focus on the relationship between social media activity and stock trading.
