The Chicago Fed staff, in a response to a CFTC request for comments on possible new regulations for automated trading, said consistent risk controls are necessary to remove the danger that algorithms can malfunction. The CFTC, along with the Securities and Exchange Commission, boosted scrutiny of high-frequency and algorithmic trading after May 6, 2010, when $862 billion in equity value was erased in 20 minutes before share prices recovered. CFTC members voted unanimously on Sept. 9 to issue a concept release requesting input on more than 100 questions, including whether to expand testing and supervision of high-speed trading strategies. The release, a step prior to a formal proposal, also sought comment on whether to require registration for automated trading firms, taking a first step in potential restrictions on high-speed and algorithmic derivatives trading.

Volcker Rule reins in banks’ riskiest trading

“While the proposal before us articulates standards for making those distinctions, those standards will necessarily be developed further as they are applied.” The Volcker Rule also must be approved by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. All the agencies are set to act, despite a Washington snowstorm that shut most local government operations for the day. CFTC spokesman Steven Adamske said his agency will not hold a public meeting, but commissioners will approve the rules in writing. Regulators hope the rules mean banks take less risk, operate with less leverage and have more consistent financial results in the future, CLSA banking analyst Mike Mayo said.
