US SEC to press ahead with "tick size" study, Chair White says

WASHINGTON, Feb 21 (Reuters) - The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission will press ahead with a test program that would allow the stocks of small-cap companies to trade in wider increments, SEC Chair Mary Jo White announced Friday.

The so-called tick size pilot program “would widen the quoting and trading increments and test, among other things, whether a change like this improves liquidity and market quality,” White said in a speech at the Practising Law Institute’s annual SEC Speaks conference.
