  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) June 01, 2013 - Legal experts have predicted that a Bloomberg challenge to proposed rules from the CFTC could prove pivotal in determining the success of sweeping new reforms to the US derivatives market. Bloomberg, which is planning to launch an Swap Execution Facility (SEF) to protect the revenues they currently make from facilitating bilateral trades, is claiming that the CFTC has created an uneven playing field by making it far more expensive to trade and clear derivatives on an SEF than on an exchange; this is because the margin that must be posted against an SEF-traded product could be up to five times greater than against the equivalent exchange-traded swap future.

    Bloomberg says the CFTC's rules threaten the viability of SEFs as trading firms would simply switch to futures exchanges, where similar products would be cheaper to trade.
    What is the impact of the new regulations on costs and margining? How advanced are margin regulations for uncleared swaps?
    Should Derivatives Clearing Organizations (DCOs) have the power to establish liquidation times for certain products?
    Will recent OTC clearing initiatives result in the reduction or increase of the counterparty risk exposure?
    How real are the benefits of cross-margining? Will or should clients clear futures and OTC derivatives with the same firm?
    Will the rise of collateral requirements impact sourcing eligible collateral and collateral's availability?

    These questions will be debated at Tech2Trade Expo 2013's Derivatives Trading Forum 2013 (http://www.DerivativesTradingForum.com), this July 30 in New York City, September 18 in London., October 8 in Chicago, October 24 in Singapore and November 21 in Frankfurt.
