Volcker Rule
February 13, 2012

CME Group provides the following suggestions in the comment letter:

  • The Agencies’ final rules should unambiguously state that market making-related activities in exchange-traded futures and options are among the permitted activities in which a covered banking entity may engage
  • The Agencies should clarify that treasury futures and options are permitted investments under Section 619(D)(1)(A)
  • If the Agencies disagree that treasury futures and options are permitted investments under Section 619(D)(1)(A), then the Agencies should use the exemptive authority in Section 619(D)(1)(J) to add treasury futures and options on treasury futures to the list of permissible proprietary trading activities for covered banking entities
