Workshop Series

10:45 a.m. Recordkeeping: Training on Revised Rules

Imagine that you have received a request from the CFTC or the NFA for records. This session will train session participants on various aspects of recordkeeping including format, retention and accessibility to better prepare you to respond to such an inquiry. What do recently revised CFTC rules (1.31) mean in practice? What are the regulators expecting to see when they conduct an audit? Speakers will use actual experiences in responding to regulatory inquiries to advise participants on best practices for retaining records.

1:00 p.m. Training on Exchange Rules

As self-regulatory and membership organizations, exchanges can audit, inquire and discipline their participants. Knowledge of exchange rules, which can change frequently, is critical to a successful compliance and training program. This session will take an in-depth look at areas where additional training makes a difference in how regulators respond to rule violations.

2:15 p.m. Algorithmic Trading: Training to Avoid Disrupting Markets

When a disruption occurs, exchanges waste no time asking questions of market participants to understand the source. Speakers will address the questions commonly raised in an inquiry from an exchange when a potential disruption occurs along with strategies for responding. This session will cover steps that could be taken during development, launch and operation of algos to avoid types of disruptive practices such as spoofing, flickering, layering and reporting potential rule violations. Delegates will go away with a better understanding of the components of an effective training and supervision program for algorithmic trading.


Schedule subject to change. 

Certificates of completion will be available for each workshop.  You must scan out of the workshop in order to receive a certificate.  Certificates will be emailed to you within one month of the event.
