The article reports on the impact of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (miFID) on securities markets and exchanges in Europe, which was assessed by Reuters. According to Reuters, MiFID has resulted to market fragmentation and the lost of some of the traditional franchises of domestic exchanges across Europe, as traders use alternative venues. The advantage of the MiFID to Markit Boat, a London, England-based trade reporting platform owned by the Markit Group, is cited by Reuters.
