    • CME Group's (NASDAQ:CME) global market share in interest rate swaps fell to 30% in November from 38% a month earlier, according to Clarus. The other player in swaps - LCH.Clearnet - has the rest.
    • CME has been trying to break LCH's stranglehold on the market for two years, but that 30% figure is its lowest market share level to date, says Clarus.
    • At issue, say brokers, is the way banks price the same swap differently depending on which clearing house is used. The trend of banks being able to save money using LCH first became noticeable in May, but recently the "basis" reached its widest-ever level.
    • "CME's market share is changing and unless the basis tightens, I can't see it coming back," says Clarus CEO Amir Khwaja.
    • CME says it's working on a fix by providing a CME-specific yield curve, thus allowing for more accurate pricing and accounting of trades.

    • CME Group (CME -2.8%) won a legal victory as a judge dismissed a lawsuit charging the futures exchange operator with favoring high-frequency traders.
    • In dismissing the action, Judge John Robert Blakey said that three CME customers failed to allege they suffered actual losses on specific transactions from CME policies, or that artificial prices existed at CME Group: "This Court's task is not to adjudicate the fairness or appropriateness of high-frequency trading."
    • The three had said that CME Group, the world's biggest futures exchange operator, had enabled a manipulated marketplace by selling high-frequency traders access to market data ahead of others.
