Effective Date of NFA Interpretive Notice to NFA Compliance Rule 2-36 regarding Price Slippage and Price Requoting

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) recently approved NFA's Interpretive Notice entitled NFA Compliance Rule 2-36: Requirements for Forex Transactions.

NFA Compliance Rule 2-36 imposes a number of requirements on Forex Dealer Members (FDMs) regarding the manner in which they handle customer forex transactions, which are designed to ensure that an FDM acts honestly, fairly and in the best interests of its customers. NFA's Business Conduct Committee has recently taken a number of disciplinary actions against FDMs for violations of this Rule based on practices they employ in handling price changes that occur from the time a customer enters an order until the time it reaches the FDM's trading system. This Interpretive Notice provides guidance to FDMs on how to deal with these circumstances in a manner that does not violate NFA Compliance Rule 2-36. The Interpretive Notice becomes effective March 26, 2012.

The Interpretive Notice provides examples of asymmetrical price slippage settings that have been used by FDMs that clearly violate NFA Compliance Rule 2-36 because the settings allow the FDM to manipulate the prices that the forex customer receives and allows the FDM to benefit from the price slippage to the detriment of the customer. The Interpretive Notice also makes it clear that any asymmetrical slippage settings or requoting practices that provide an advantage to the FDM to the detriment of the forex customer violate NFA Compliance Rule 2-36. In order to avoid violating NFA Compliance Rule 2-36 when addressing these price changes,

FDMs must adhere to the following:
  • FDMs must apply the slippage setting uniformly regardless of the direction the market has moved;
  • If the FDM requotes prices when the market moves against it, it must requote prices when the market moves in its favor; and
  • FDMs must ensure that the customer is aware of how the FDM handles these price change circumstances prior to trading with the FDM by providing full written disclosure of its policy, including the information outlined in the Interpretive Notice. For existing customers, FDMs must provide written disclosure prior to the effective date of this Interpretive Notice.
FDMs must also have written procedures that outline the manner it handles price changes, including information on the application of any slippage parameters and requoting practices. Finally, FDMs must ensure that any of its promotional material that discusses the mechanics of its trading system does not include information that misrepresents or is misleading with respect to its price slippage and requoting practices.

FDMs should be aware that although the Interpretive Notice becomes effective on March 26, 2012, the practices described in the Notice are already violations of Compliance Rule 2-36.

2012er Forex Regulatory Guide
Price Slippage
In the context of FDM trading systems, price slippage sometimes occurs between the time a customer first submits an order until the time the order
reaches the FDM's system. When this occurs, some FDMs immediately requote the customer the current price and require the customer to confirm that it still wants to place the order at the requoted price. Other FDMs have built in slippage parameters that permit execution of the order if the slippage is within the established parameters. FDMs that use slippage parameters must apply the slippage settings uniformly regardless of the direction the market has moved.

If the FDM requotes prices when the market moves against it, it must requote prices when the market moves in its favor. In addition, FDMs must ensure that the customer is aware of how the FDM handles these price change circumstances prior to trading with the FDM by providing full written disclosure of its policy, including the information outlined
in NFA's Interpretive Notice, "NFA Compliance Rule 2-36: Requirements for Forex Transactions".

btw. Die Anforderungen gelten bislang nur für US-Broker. Wer über Malta, Zypern oder sonstwo handelt, wird sich weiterhin mit diesen Themen auseinandersetzen müssen.
