SEC issues proposed rule related to margin requirements for security futures

  • SEC document Image

Jul 08, 2019

The SEC has issued a proposed rule, “Customer Margin Rules Relating to Security Futures.”

The proposed rule would “lower the margin requirement for an unhedged security futures position from 20% to 15%, as well as propose certain revisions to the margin offset table consistent with the proposed reduction in margin.”

The proposal is subject to approval by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, which shares rulemaking authority related to margin requirements for security futures with the SEC. Com­ments on the pro­posed rule are due 30 days after the date of its pub­li­ca­tion in the Federal Reg­is­ter.

For more in­for­ma­tion, see the press release and pro­posed rule on the SEC’s Web site.
