CFTC Said Ready to Push Interest-Rate Swaps onto SEFs

After three-month review, agency may decide next month to require interest rate swaps, credit default swaps, and other securities to trade on the platforms.

The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) is poised to push interest-rate and credit swaps onto trading platforms designed to make prices more transparent and competitive.

The agency’s approval would follow a three-month review of plans to mandate that certain types of trades be conducted on swap execution facilities, or Sefs, including those owned by Javelin Capital Markets LLC and trueEX LLC. The change, required under the Dodd-Frank Act, could take place as soon as next month.
