Regulation Automated Trading

An Overview of Proposed Regulation AT

Orrick attorneys authored an overview of Regulation Automated Trading (known as “Regulation AT”) proposed by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”) in the May/June 2016 issue of the Journal of Taxation and Regulation of Financial Institutions.  The “overarching goal” of proposed Regulation AT is to update the CFTC’s rules in response to the development and prevalence of electronic trading.  The article is titled “Regulation Automated Trading in Derivatives: An Overview of the CFTC’s Proposed Regulation AT” and is available here.
