This economic impact assessment looks at the impact of minimum resting times and call markets and circuit breakers. The aim of introducing these regulatory measures for trades submitted to the market is to reduce the effects of a market ‘flash crash’.

This impact assessment was commissioned as part of the Foresight project on the future of computer trading.
