The technological advancement of financial markets has allowed for trade to move to being nearly entirely electronic, with the majority of trades placed by automated participants. This has resulted in drastic increases in the quantity and complexity of regulatory data. The processing and analyzing of these markets and participants have emerged as a serious challenge for financial regulators. New order types, intra-market behavior and other exchange functionality further complicate the task of understanding market behavior and events. Data visualizations have proven to be a fundamental tool for building intuition and enabling exploratory data analysis in many fields. In this paper, we propose the incorporation of visualizations in the workflow of multiple financial regulatory roles, including market surveillance, enforcement, and academic research.
