On August 10th, the SEC requested additional comments on its interim final temporary Rule 15b12-1T under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which allows a registered broker-dealer to engage in a retail forex business provided that the broker-dealer complies with the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the rules and regulations thereunder, and the rules of the self-regulatory organization(s) of which the broker-dealer is a member, insofar as they are applicable to retail forex transactions. Rule 15b12-1T is intended to preserve the existing regulatory structure for broker-dealers while providing the Commission with an opportunity to receive comments and evaluate whether to prescribe additional rules and to further consider investor protection concerns as they affect the regulatory treatment of retail forex transactions by broker-dealers. The Commission does not intend to create any new obligations for broker-dealers that are engaged in a retail forex business under the interim final temporary rule. Comments should be submitted on or before October 31, 2012. SEC Release No. 34-67405A.
