During our recent "MiFIR: Beyond the Reporting" webinar, we highlighted some of the ancillary parts of MiFID II that firms are looking into in order to stay ahead of the regulatory reporting curve.
Some of the ancillary reporting obligations have not been talked about much by the industry resulting in firms not knowing enough about how they will be affected by these regulations.

Commodities have underperformed other risk assets in 2013 as they have faced a combination of concerns relating to slower Chinese economic growth, worries over excess supply in several markets, and fears that the eventual withdrawal of quantitative easing (QE) in the US could result in a stronger dollar. More recently, sentiment towards commodities has improved somewhat as Chinese economic sentiment indicators have rallied while the Federal Reserve surprised investors by not announcing some tapering of QE in September, putting downward pressure on the dollar.
