The Commodity Futures Trading Commission has extended until March 7, 2016, the comment period for its draft technical specifications for certain swap data elements. The CFTC previously proposed the draft specifications dealing with descriptions, allowable values and formats for certain swap data elements reportable under CFTC rules, as well as certain swap data elements not currently reportable. Through February 19, 2016, the CFTC posted on its website only four comment letters it has received in response to this proposal (click here to access filed comment letters).
