CFTC Reg AT: Will it Improve the Status Quo?
The industry has been working feverishly since early December to respond to the CFTC’s 500-page proposed rulemaking on automated trading. This ambitious document covers a broad range of topics including risk controls for exchanges, traders and intermediaries; self-match prevention; access to source code; registration of Floor Traders; and other topics. This panel will explore the objectives of the rule, and consider the CFTC’s proposals against existing industry-practices and possible alternative approaches.
