When: January 11th @ 9:30 a.m. EST (4:30 p.m. SAST if you are in Cape Town, South Africa, where I might add it appears to be 68 degrees Fahrenheit at the present moment…not too bad for January 12th…but then again, it is SUMMER there and 20 degrees Fahrenheit where I frigidly sit typing)

What: The CFTC will hold meeting to consider:

1) CFTC’s proposed Volcker Rule;

2) Final Rule: Registration of Swap Dealers (SDs) and Major Swap Participants (MSPs)

3) Final Rule: Cleared Swaps Customer Contracts and Collateral (Conforming Amendments to Part 190 Commodity Broker Bankruptcy Rules); and

4) Final Rule: Business Conduct Standards for SDs and MSPs with Counterparties.

The CFTC will also consider an order that would delegate authority for SD/MSP registration functions to the NFA.

Details regarding participation are available here.

Good day. Good year. TSR
