Event Synopsis:

In November 2015, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) issued proposed rules that set forth registration, reporting, recordkeeping and other compliance requirements of market participants involved in algorithmic trading. The proposed rules, known as Regulation Automated Trading or Regulation AT would require a series of risk controls, safeguards and transparency measures designed to enhance the U.S. regulatory regime for automated trading in the markets over which the CFTC has jurisdiction. The rules will impose compliance, reporting and registration requirements on proprietary firms, designated contract markets (DCM), clearing member futures commission merchants (FCM) and other CFTC registrants using algorithmic trading systems. The proposed rules are intended to reduce the likelihood that algorithmic trading will result in violations of the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA) or CFTC regulations.

In order to address the risks of Algorithmic Trading, potential market disruptions arising from system malfunctions, other errors, or intentional disruptive conduct, it is highly necessary to implement written policies and procedures, establish a system for monitoring algorithmic trading in real time and ensure compliance with the CEA and the Commission regulations.
