Order Instituting Administrative and Cease-and-Desist Proceedings Pursuant to Section 8A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Sections 15(b) and 21C of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, Making Findings, and Imposing Remedial Sanctions and a Cease-and-Desist Order
On January 31, 2016, the SEC instituted settled administrative and cease-and-desist proceedings against Barclays Capital Inc. ("Barclays"). According to the SEC: "Barclays is the owner and operator of Barclays LX ("LX"), an alternative trading system ('ATS') that operates as a 'dark pool.' LX accepts, matches, and executes orders from clients (subscribers that access LX through Barclays' trading algorithms or order router only) and direct subscribers (subscribers that access LX directly, or in combination with Barclays' algorithms and/or order router) (collectively, 'LX subscribers' or 'subscribers') to buy and sell NMS stocks. As of May 2014, LX was the nation's second largest NMS stock ATS. From December 2011 through June 2014 (the 'relevant period'), Barclays violated the federal securities laws and regulations arising from its operation and marketing of LX.... In particular, Barclays made materially misleading statements and omitted to state certain material facts necessary to make statements made not misleading concerning a) the operation of an LX product feature called Liquidity Profiling, which Barclays described as a 'powerful tool to proactively monitor LX' and as a 'sophisticated surveillance framework that protects clients from predatory trading' and b) the market data feeds that it used in LX. In addition, Barclays violated the federal securities laws and regulations related to its market access and its operation of LX, including by failing to establish adequate safeguards and procedures to protect subscribers' confidential trading information, and to adopt and implement adequate procedures to ensure that such safeguards and procedures are followed."
