  • ISE Gemini Introduces Flat Pricing For Price Improvement Auctions

    Date 22/12/2014

    ISE Gemini announced the introduction of a new “flat” pricing structure for price improvement mechanism (PIM) auctions as of January 2, 2015, subject to regulatory clearance. With this new model, both PIM auction initiators and responders will pay the same fee of $0.05 per contract. Priority Customers on the originating side of a PIM order will continue to be free. The new structure will create additional transparency and a more level playing field in auction pricing. It also has the potential to deliver a higher level of price improvement to the end customer by increasing competition among auction responders at a fee level substantially lower than competing auction mechanisms.
