Federal Reserve Issues Proposed Rule on Retail Foreign Exchange Trading


The Federal Reserve Board on July 28 issued a proposed rule that sets standards for banking organizations regulated by the Federal Reserve that engage in certain types of foreign exchange transactions with retail customers. The proposal, issued pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, outlines requirements for disclosure, recordkeeping, business conduct, and documentation for retail foreign exchange transactions. Institutions engaging in such transactions will be required to identify themselves to their regulator and to be well capitalized. They will also be required to collect margin for retail foreign exchange transactions.
