Swap-Trading Rules Won’t Be Finished by November, O’Malia Says
Commissioner says CFTC will focus first on rules ensuring swaps are backed by clearinghouses.
Swap-trading rules governing firms such as CME Group Inc. and ICAP Plc won’t be completed by mid-November at the main U.S. derivatives regulator, according to Commodity Futures Trading Commissioner Scott O’Malia.
The CFTC plans to first finish separate rules to ensure interest-rate and credit swaps are backed by clearinghouses that collect collateral from buyers and sellers, O’Malia said today at a Futures Industry Association conference in Chicago.
