Tradition plans forex exchange ahead of new rules | Reuters
brokers and inter dealer brokers are forced to put their desks (OTC) onto digital platforms,

ECN / no dealing desk

"Policy-makers are keen to shake-up the vast over-the-counter markets in currencies, bonds and derivatives where these brokers operate by forcing them on to electronic platforms as early as this year.

[...] Regulators are keen to force more of these murky OTC markets to use electronic, exchange-based systems to make them more transparent and easier to regulate.

The banks' support of Tradition's new project is partly a response to growing frustration among banks with the levels of HFT activity in the existing platforms.

Tradition's traFXpure is designed to tackle this."

Bloomberg’s Harper Says Bank Exposure to Europe Clouded (Audio)
Nov 16, 2011
Bloomberg reporter Christine Harper says U.S. bank investors are being kept in the dark about exposure to European sovereign default. Harper talks with Bloomberg's Ken Prewitt and Tom Keene on Bloomberg Radio's "Bloomberg Surveillance."

- ISDA - the body for CDS / Derivatives decided that greece 50% PSI (haircut) is not default,
- bc ISDA is owned by banks, if they would rule it as default scenario - everyone would have owed somebody something - which would have introduced great uncertainty, volatility, share price losses
- did it in their own interest.
= this equals to collusion in an oligopolistic market.

Credit-Default Swap Risk Bomb Is Wired to Explode: Mark Buchanan - Bloomberg
The European nations are linked in a network of debts, as Bill Marsh recently illustrated in the New York Times with a beautiful piece of graphic art. Greece and Italy are prominent; Ireland, Portugal and Spain lurk ominously nearby. France and Germany seem exposed, too, as does the U.S.
The image is like a complex wiring diagram for a ticking debt bomb. Yet what it shows may be less important than what it leaves out: a largely invisible network of ties among institutions around the world, which could ultimately cause global financial chaos.
This hidden network has been created by institutions that buy and sell unregulated credit-default swaps. These are essentially insurance contracts on bonds; in the event of a default on the bond, the seller of the swap promises to pay the buyer the bond’s value.

The researchers showed that too much risk sharing can make it easy for distress to spread like a virus.

The Volcker Rule: Toothless Then, Even More Toothless Now | ZeroHedge
Whatever the banks ultimately have to live with, it is highly unlikely that it will resemble this. If the Basel Accords are any indication, the battle to water down the rules will continue up until the last minute.

In the meantime, many of the Volcker Rules would be unnecessary if more products were put on exchanges. So many of the “flow trading” concerns that are being raised by this document would go away if the regulators pushed for more transparency, more clearing, and more exchange traded products. Progress on that front would go a long way to decreasing risks. Of all the banking nightmares, not once have I heard of an equity “sales-trader” putting the firm at risk.

Another Exchange Halts Levered OTC Gold And Silver Trading | zero hedge
Last week it was, now it is Oanda. As a reminder "... on Friday told clients it will discontinue its gold and silver over-the-counter products marketed to retail investors who are U.S. residents. It asked investors to close their positions by July 15." This was first reported on Zero Hedge. "Trading gold and silver over the counter -- bypassing a futures exchange -- offered investors a chance to enter a highly speculative, leveraged market that also left many investors at risk of fraud, according to one trade group. “In order to trade, it needs to be done in a exchange, or it can’t be done at all,” said Dan Driscoll, a vice president with the National Futures Association. The industry group asked Congress for such changes, due to numerous cases of fraud in such contracts. Doing business with a futures exchange offers retail investors more protections and transparency, he said." There you go: it's the extensive fraud that did it.

How To Kill OTC Derivatives Reform in Two Sentences « The Baseline Scenario
Have lobbyists snuck another major loophole into the OTC Derivatives bill? This week the final touches are being put on Barney Frank’s financial regulation bill – H.R. 4173 – “Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009.” One of the centerpieces of this reform is Title III: Over-the-Counter Derivatives Markets Act. And one of the goals of this reform would be to get as many derivatives as possible to trade on exchanges.
