FIA offered recommendations on CFTC-proposed amendments to large trader position requirements to address outstanding issues and "promote the transparency and quality of data."
FIA urged the SEC to exclude futures commission merchants from its proposed requirement to centrally clear transactions in Treasury securities.
FIA submitted a comment letter questioning the value of certain compliance resource information required to be submitted as part of FCM and swap dealer CCO annual reports.
FIA requested that the CFTC codify no-action relief regarding the treatment of separately managed accounts held at futures commission merchants.
