The Commodity Futures Trading Commission will hold a public roundtable on March 3, 2016, to assess whether the current obligation that futures commission merchants hold by 6 p.m. Eastern Time on the next business day after trade date a sufficient amount of their own funds (known as an FCM’s residual interest) in customer segregated accounts to cover the undermargined amounts of other customers. The CFTC is seeking to determine whether the 6 p.m. time is appropriate or should be changed to another earlier time. This requirement applies to customer accounts for futures and foreign futures. There is a different regime for customer accounts involving swaps.
