The Commodity Futures Trading Commission announced that staff will host a public roundtable to discuss five aspects of Regulation Automated Trading, initially proposed in November 2015. The broad matters to be addressed are (1) the definition of direct electronic access; (2) market participants covered by Regulation AT; (3) alternatives to the Commission’s proposed requirements to mandate pre-trade risk controls and system testing by all impacted registrants that engage in algorithmic trading; (4) how impacted registrants might comply with Regulation AT’s requirements when using third-party software or systems; and (5) source code retention and access. The roundtable will be held on June 10, 2016, at the CFTC’s offices in Washington, DC beginning at 9 am and can be accessed remotely (click here to access international dial-in numbers). In addition, the CFTC announced that, in conjunction with the roundtable, it would reopen the comment period for Regulation AT for items on its agenda, as well as items that may come up during the roundtable. The supplemental comment period will run from June 10 through June 24, 2016.
