Andrew Ceresney, Director of Enforcement at the Securities and Exchange Commission, tells Reuters' Sarah Lynch that SEC investigators are drilling into techniques such as "spoofing" and "layering", as well as abuse of order types, as it looks for potential violations of the law. "There's obviously been a recent focus on HFT, but I think you have to look at this more broadly as really the market structure area generally. In the market structure area we've had ongoing a number of investigations. We in the last few years have brought a number of cases against exchanges for a number of different issues."
