Operation of a trading venue


    The CSSF’s mission is to supervise the financial markets, the operators of a regulated market authorised in Luxembourg which are specialised PFS, as well as the entities that operate an MTF or an OTF in Luxembourg. The CSSF also monitors compliance with the rules governing the access to and the functioning of the markets that these entities operate.

    Currently one operator is authorised to manage and operate the business of a regulated market in Luxembourg: the Société de la Bourse de Luxembourg operating the regulated market named “Bourse de Luxembourg”. This operator also operates an MTF named “Euro MTF”. Currently, no other entity is authorised to operate in Luxembourg the business of a trading venue (regulated market, MTF or OTF) within the meaning of the Law of 30 May 2018 on markets in financial instruments.

    Below you find explanations on some specific MiFID requirements for trading venues that have required the introduction of specific forms.

    Circuit breakers reporting

    In accordance with the second subparagraph of Article 48(5) of MiFID II, trading venues established in Luxembourg shall report to the CSSF the circuit breakers’ parameters and any material changes to those parameters using the form in the “Documentation” section.

    Provision of arrangements to facilitate access to an MTF/OTF
