On August 16th, the Board of Directors of the National Futures Association approved amendments to NFA Financial Requirements that will require each futures commission merchant ("FCM") to provide its Designated Self-Regulatory Organization ("DSRO") with view-only access via the Internet to account information for each of the FCM's customer segregated funds account(s) maintained and held at a bank or trust company. The same requirement would apply to the FCM's customer secured account(s) held for customers trading on foreign futures exchanges. If a bank or trust company is unable to allow the FCM to provide its DSRO with view-only full access via the Internet, the bank or trust company will not be deemed an acceptable depository to hold customer segregated and secured accounts. The new requirements will be sent to the CFTC for approval. NFA Press Release.
