FIA responds to CFTC Foreign Boards of Trade proposed rulemaking

22 April 2024

FIA has responded to the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s Foreign Board of Trade notice of proposed rulemaking.

Under current rules, US-based commodity pool operators, commodity trading advisers, futures commission merchants and prop firms can directly access Foreign Boards of Trade. The pending rule would include US-based introducing brokers among the permissioned registrants.

FIA’s letter supports the proposed expansion, noting that adding introducing brokers to the mix should provide more brokerage options for US customers and promote liquidity in foreign products.
