Current Trends and Issues

Advances in technology have had a major impact on the financial industry in recent years. For example, more institutional traders are using mobile apps to conduct trades. According to a survey by JP Morgan Chase & Co., 61 percent of institutional traders surveyed in 2018 said that they were extremely or somewhat likely to use a trading app, an increase of 30 percent from 2017. The use of mobile trading apps is expected to continue to grow, although some firms have established restrictions regarding the use of such technology. Fifty percent of institutional traders surveyed by JP Morgan said that company policy prohibits them from trading on mobile devices. Other trends worth watching include the integration of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and blockchain technology into trading platforms, the growing popularity of cryptocurrencies, and the continuing decline of trading commissions.
