Citadel believes that competition and innovation have markedly improved conditions for all investors, who benefit from dramatically lower trading costs, improved market transparency and liquidity, and increased competition.

Consistent with our longstanding commitment to more fair and efficient markets, we believe these changes will enhance transparency and resiliency in the US Treasury market and provide Treasury market participants with greater choice among trading venues and counterparties.
