Regulation AT – how would the CFTC’s landmark proposal affect proprietary traders, market fairness and systemic risk?

  • How would the CFTC and other government agencies use proprietary source code obtained from automated traders to reduce the likelihood of “flash crashes” and other harmful market disruptions?
  • Do the potential benefits justify significantly lowering the bar for government access to intellectual property? 
  • How will regulators protect source code from hackers and cyber-breaches? 
  • How would market participants, particularly smaller ones, handle the higher compliance costs created by Reg AT’s increased risk controls, reporting demands and recordkeeping requirements?
  • How should exchanges and trading venues be involved in the oversight process?
