Regulators Agree To Framework To Strengthen Circuit Breakers

Top regulators and the leaders of six exchanges –the New York Stock Exchange, NASDAQ, BATS, Direct Edge, ISE and CBOE — on Monday agreed to a structural framework that would strengthen circuit breakers when a stock price drops significantly, in the wake of the Dow’s 1,000 point drop on Thursday.

“As a first step, the parties agreed on a structural framework, to be refined over the next day, for strengthening circuit breakers and handling erroneous trades,” SEC Chairwoman Schapiro said in a statement.
