Published June 19, 2014 The Trade

Inter-dealer broker Tullett Prebon Information has launched a consolidated data feed, which combines pre- and post-trade market data for the interest rate swaps (IRS) market.

CFTC Repository Rule Won't Save Regulators From Data Leak Bills, Say European Supervisors

By Ramya Jaidev
Published August 23 2011 Risk Magazine

Regulators outside the US should have been celebrating the release of final rules on swap data repositories (SDRs) by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) on August 15 - the text attempts to resolve a clause in the Dodd-Frank Act that would make them liable for any costs that arise after data has been requested from a US-registered repository, including lawsuits triggered by data leaks.
