Technology Advisory Committee Meeting
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) announced that the CFTC’s Technology Advisory Committee (the “TAC”) will hold a public meeting.
The meeting will focus on three significant issues facing the futures and swaps industries as the Commission continues to finalize rules under the Dodd-Frank Act.
Tuesday, December 13, 2011, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
CFTC Conference Center, 1155 21st Street, NW, Washington, DC
This year-end meeting will focus on three significant issues facing the futures and swaps industries as the Commission continues to finalize rules under the Dodd-Frank Act. Those issues are: (1) what we can expect to see in the new trading environment of swap execution facilities (SEFs); (2) defining, classifying, and observing high frequency traders (HFTs) and their impact on the markets; and (3) and interim recommendations from the Subcommittee on Data Standardization on universal product and legal entity identifiers, standardization of machine-readable legal contracts, semantics, and data storage and retrieval.
“The topics covered by the TAC today represent several interesting technology related subjects the Commission will be dealing with next year. It is my hope that we can draw on the extensive market expertise of our members to identify and highlight possible policy solutions in each of the three topic areas,” stated Commissioner Scott D. O’Malia, Chairman of the TAC.
