Several years ago everyone was upset the CME unbundled. Now upset they are bundling. People dislike change, no matter the root of it.

In 2009, people were upset because they could no longer see the size of the aggressor on trades.

Now - if they have brought this back to 2009, that's a good move. But if they are bundling ticks by second, that muddies the water even more.

On their side, it lessens bandwidth, on our side, we have less transparency.
