On April 15th, the CFTC published for public comment a proposal to exempt from the Commodity Exchange Act the trading and clearing of certain options and security futures contracts on each of ETFS Physical Swiss Gold Shares and ETFS Physical Silver Shares, which would be traded on national securities exchanges and designated contract markets registered with the SEC as limited purpose national securities exchanges and cleared through the Options Clearing Corporation. The CFTC also is requesting comment on whether it should amend all orders issued exempting the trading and clearing of options and futures on gold and silver products from CEA provisions and CFTC regulations, to impose market and large trader reporting requirements. Comments should be submitted on or before May 17, 2010. 75 FR 19619.
