Commodity Options and Agricultural Swaps
March 29, 2011

From the comment letter:

"We agree with the commission's assessment that subjecting agricultural swaps to Dodd-Frank's regulatory regime would be consistent with the public interest. Permitting agricultural swaps to transact under the same terms and conditions of other swaps will provide greater certainty and stability to the agricultural swaps market and will advance many of Dodd-Frank's goals, including increased pre-trade price transparency, and the reduction of systemic risk through the use of central party clearinghouses. Applying the same rules to agricultural swaps as to all other types of swaps will also ensure that only appropriate persons enter into agricultural swaps."
