What can MiFID II do to help address excessive commodity price volatility?

Anne PlestedThe next in my series of PMQs looks at the measures specific to Commodity Derivatives covered in the EC’s Public Consultation paper on the Review of MiFID.

A dry subject, perhaps, but I would say one very close to our hearts (and wallets, with pump prices close to £1.40 a litre!) as we witness economics in action. In a climate of unrest in North Africa and the Gulf, super-high commodity prices are being fuelled by demand from emerging markets and impacted by severe weather, driving up oil prices, driving up food costs, contributing to resentment and, in some parts of the world, dissent.

Click here to read my summary of the likely impact MiFID II will have on price volatility across some of these vital commodities.

If you wish to share your own views on the subject, please do leave a comment!

Coming soon on PMQs: Transaction Reporting (potentially the scariest one for us!)

Do you think the MiFID II proposals will have any effect on controlling commodity prices?
