The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 17 CFR Part 32 after this date.
On May 7, 2015, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“Commission” or “CFTC”) published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (the “Trade Options Proposal”) to amend the limited trade option exemption in part 32 of its regulations. The Commission is extending the comment period for the Trade Options Proposal in light of the Commission's recent interpretation concerning forward contracts with embedded volumetric optionality.
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (the “Commission” or the “CFTC”) is proposing to amend the trade option exemption in its regulations, as described herein, in the following subject areas: Reporting requirements for trade option counterparties that are not swap dealers or major swap participants; recordkeeping requirements for trade option counterparties that are not swap dealers or major swap participants; and certain non-substantive amendments.
