CFTC Issues Proposed Swaps Report for Public Comment

The CFTC has issued, for public comment, a proposed CFTC Swaps Report that, when the proposal is finalized, will give the public a view into the swaps market.

The CFTC Swaps Report will offer the public a comprehensive view of the size, risks, and activities in the swaps market. The proposal for this new market transparency initiative grew out of the swaps market reforms of the Dodd-Frank Act. While the Dodd-Frank Act only requires the CFTC to publish a report on trading, clearing, participants, and products in the swaps market on a semiannual and annual basis, the CFTC has elected to publish this information on a weekly basis. This much greater level of transparency will allow market participants and the public to gain a more thorough understanding of risks and developments in the swaps market.
