The Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission have released a “Memorandum of Understanding” (MOU) detailing their agreement to share market data between one another.
It was hoped that the swaps market reform would help promote trading between these two groups. But, even without this, the market will at least be more transparent.
Platform operators seem to think that this new CFTC EC SEF agreement may not do much at all to keep liquidity between Europe and US markets.
This Tuesday (February 18th) marked the first day that trades had to be executed through SEFs in the US. And it seems that traders aren’t quite ready to jump on board.
The CFTC and the EU have agreed to allow US firms to trade over European platforms, rather than forcing them to be traded through US swap execution facilities, or SEFs.
