Also review the CFTC’s recent Position Limits proposal, plus the US Bank Regulators’ rules for Qualified Financial Contracts (QFCs) which are defined in Dodd-Frank, modifications to SA-CCR rules for calculating risk-weighted capital to be held by banks for uncleared and unmargined derivative contracts, and other Dodd-Frank developments including cross-border impacts.
