On November 12th, the SEC approved the Chicago Board Options Exchange's proposal to amend its registration and qualification requirements for individual trading permit holders and their associated persons. The CBOE is amending its rules to make them substantially similar to the registration, examination and continuing education requirements of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. The amendments require all individual TPHs and TPH associated persons, regardless of whether they conduct a public customer or proprietary securities business, to register, qualify and comply with continuing education requirements.
