Acuiti today publishes the Q4 2023 Proprietary Trading Managers’ Insight Report.
In this report, we take a look ahead to 2024, asking what expectations are for the year as well as where firms are planning to invest.
We also explore how rising costs from exchanges are impacting proprietary trading firms. Our hot topics this quarter cover DORA, crypto markets, hiring, CFD bans and 0DTE in Europe and the long term impact of IFR/D.
Some of the key findings included:
- Firms are looking to expand their coverage in fixed income to include government bond trading and also targeting expansion in FX markets
- Awareness of the EU’s Digital Operational Resilience Act, which will come into force in 2025 remains low among impacted firms
- Over half of firms that trade equity options are considering trading 0DTE on Eurex, pointing to growth in the product in 2024
- Proprietary trading firms are increasing their investment budgets in 2024 in light of expectations of a strong year for revenue growth
