ESMA updated its Q&As regarding market structures and transparency issues under MiFID II and MiFIR. The new Q&As provide clarification on the following topics: \u2022 Classification of derivatives on derivatives for transparency purposes; \u2022 Default liquidity status of bonds (amendment to an existing Q&A); \u2022 Scope of the pre-trade transparency waiver provided under Article 9(1)(c) of MiFIR; \u2022 Market Making activities and incentives to be provided during stressed market conditions; \u2022 Treatment of bulk quotes for the calculation of the Order to Trade Ratio; \u2022 Scope of Article 17(6) of MiFID II and Chapter IV (Articles 24-27) of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/589 (RTS 6); \u2022 Arranging of transactions that are ultimately formalised on another trading venue; \u2022 Registration of a segment of an MTF as an SME growth market; and \u2022 Maker Taker schemes.
ESMA, to ensure common, uniform and consistent application of MiFID I and MAD, under its own initiative, adopted guidelines on systems and controls in an automated trading environment for trading platforms, investment firms and competent authorities in December 2011. Following the entry into force of MiFID II on 3 January 2018, ESMA has reviewed the guidelines in order to establish whether, in the context of the new legislative framework, they need to be amended or repealed. Having reviewed the guidelines, ESMA has decided to withdraw the guidelines based on the subject matter being successfully and fully incorporated into MiFID II and its implementing measures.
