FIA and FIA PTG Comment on CFTC Market Surveillance Program (Aug. 4, 2014)
Responding to a request from the Technology Advisory Committee of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, FIA and FIA Principal Traders Group submitted a joint letter on Aug. 4 suggesting that the CFTC should consider five principles as it examines ways to reform its market surveillance and oversight in a “technologically adept way.” The five principles are: 
  • Continue to delegate “front-line surveillance” to exchanges; 
  • Increase the analytical expertise of the CFTC staff; 
  • Use existing reports to enhance cross-market surveillance; 
  • Avoid the duplication of existing systems built or commissioned by exchanges 
  • Maintain data privacy and cybersecurity
