Demand for conventional trading goes down, are we actually offering uncompetitive products?

“Financial liquidity goes down, nor good for trading at Nasdaq. We can blame long term declining market prices, increasing transaction costs or shorter hedging horizon of customers. However, perhaps the development actually tells that the demand for financial trading with current product offering is declining – at least for the time being. One can see the glass half empty, or half full. I rather see the latter one and call for more innovative product offerings and development of the market places. If we do not develop the power market places to become more innovative, then innovative companies does it bilaterally with customers instead. That would be a kind of creative destruction for liquid markets. To combat that, we need to more visionary and less protecting status quo” .
