WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Thursday named David Saltiel as acting director of the agency’s trading and markets division, which regulates major market players including broker-dealers and stock exchanges.

Saltiel, head of the unit’s analytics and research office, replaces Christian R. Sabella. Sabella left the SEC on June 2, the SEC said in a statement.
