Technology Advisory Committee and Members of the New Subcommittee on Automated and High Frequency Trading

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) announced that the Technology Advisory Committee will hold a public meeting.

This 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.
