The Financial Conduct Authority announced that it would start publishing position limits that will be effective January 3 under MiFID II beginning in October. FCA indicated that, if later, it became necessary for it to amend these limits because of opinions of the European Securities and Markets Authority it would give market participants “an appropriate notice period” to adjust their positions. Separately, ESMA determined to add certain fixed-to-float interest rate swaps and credit default swaps indices to its mandatory trading on-venue obligations. These swaps must be traded on a regulated market, multilateral trading facility, organized trading facility or an equivalent third country trading venue. ESMA anticipates this requirement being effective January 3, 2018, pending European Commission approval.
