Analysis of on-chain data showed that it is possible to lower rates on several synths, as the risk of front-running has reduced significantly with the recent implementation of SCCP-68.
The fee levied on trade into a certain synth is usually set based on the chainlink push frequency (adjusted for leverage). Analysis of on-chain data revealed that it is possible to further lower rates on certain low-vol synths.
Analysis of on-chain data showed that lowering fees as per the below table is possible and does not expose minters to the risk of front-running. That said, trades will be monitored and if front-running is seen, the current fee structure will be revisited. I should mention that fees could potentially pushed further lower, on the synths proposed below and others (such as forex synths and commodity synths) based on further review of incoming data.

I'd like to thank every member of the synthetix community for their continued unrelenting support and trust through out 2020. I look forward to a period where we have consistent healthy robust exchange volume, with fees and fee-adjustment period lowered to the minimum on L1 (in future work).
