FIA comments on ICE block trade proposal

29 July 2016

FIA submitted a letter to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission regarding a proposal from ICE Futures U.S. that would allow pre-hedging of block trades under certain conditions. FIA said it supports the rule change, but asked the exchange to amend its guidance so that it does not "unnecessarily preclude" trading desks and affiliates of futures commission merchants from engaging in pre-hedging.
