On March 23rd, the CFTC requested comment on the Options Clearing Corporation's proposed amendment of a November 5, 2004 CFTC Order permitting OCC to operate an internal non-proprietary cross-margining program for market professional customers who trade futures products and securities products that are cleared by OCC in its capacity as a derivatives clearing organization and a securities clearing agency, respectively. The current Order requires that the cross-margined futures and securities positions be cleared by the same clearing member. OCC seeks to expand its program to permit an internal non-proprietary cross-margining account to be maintained at OCC jointly by a pair of affiliated clearing members, each of which is dually registered as a futures commission merchant and a securities broker-dealer. Comments should be submitted on or before April 22, 2011. CFTC Release No. PR6009-11.
