CFTC Adopts Final Rules for Retail Forex Transactions


The Commodity Futures Trading Commission has adopted final rules regarding over-the-counter foreign currency (forex) transactions with retail customers. The new rules are substantially similar to the rules proposed by the CFTC in January, and reflect the first body of final rules adopted by the CFTC in connection with its implementation of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act). The rules institute a variety of requirements in connection with retail forex transactions, including registration, disclosure, recordkeeping, financial reporting, minimum capital and other standards and requirements.
