SEC Announces Pilot Plan to Assess Stock Market Tick Size Impact for Smaller Companies

The SEC has announced a pilot plan to assess stock market tick size impact for smaller companies.  The press release in part states the following:

The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced that the national securities exchanges and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) filed a proposal to establish a national market system plan to implement a targeted 12-month pilot program that will widen minimum quoting and trading increments (tick sizes) for certain stocks with smaller capitalization.  The Commission plans to use the pilot program to assess whether such changes would enhance market quality for smaller capitalization stocks for the benefit of investors and issuers.
