Under the markets in financial instruments directive (MiFID), operators of regulated markets (RMs) and multilateral trading facilities (MTFs) must make public the current bid and offer prices and the depth of trading interests in respect of shares admitted to trading on a regulated market unless exemptions apply. However, MiFID allows competent authorities to waive the obligation for operators of RMs and MTFs regarding pre-trade transparency requirements for shares based on the market model or the type and size of orders.

Report on financial stability in the (re)insurance and occupational pension fund sectors of the European Economic Area
The European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) published its June 2016 report on financial stability in the (re)insurance and occupational pension fund sectors of the European Economic Area.
EIOPA observes an ongoing extremely challenging macro-economic and financial environment. Monetary policy and low crude oil prices imply a protracted low yield environment in the short- to medium-term. In this environment, the "double-hit" scenario cannot be ruled out. Both risks – low yields and a "double-hit" - will be in the focus of EIOPA's Insurance Stress Test 2016.
