Download as PDF 2692 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 13 / Monday, January 22, 2007 / Notices Estimated average hours per response: Turnover survey: 51 hours; outstandings survey: 60 hours Number of respondents: 60 General description of report: This information collection is voluntary (12 U.S.C. 225a, 248(a)(2), 358, and 3105(c)) and is given confidential treatment (5 U.S.C. ’552(b)(4)). Abstract: The FR 3036 is the U.S. part of a global data collection that is conducted by central banks every three years. More than fifty central banks plan to conduct the survey in 2007. The Bank for International Settlements compiles national data from each central bank to produce global market statistics. The Federal Reserve System and other government agencies use the survey to monitor activity in the foreign exchange and derivatives markets. Respondents use the published data to gauge their market share. Current actions: The proposed survey would collect information on the size and structure of the foreign exchange and over–the–counter derivatives markets. The survey would cover the turnover in the foreign exchange spot market, the foreign exchange derivatives market, and interest rate derivatives markets (forwards, swaps, and options). In addition, the survey would gather data on the notional amounts and gross positive and negative market values of outstanding derivatives contracts for over–the–counter foreign exchange, interest rates, equities, and commodities. To reduce reporting burden, the Derivatives Outstanding part of the survey is coordinated with the Semiannual Report of Derivatives Activity (FR 2436; OMB No. 7100– 0286). Those firms that submit FR 2436 data would not complete the Derivatives Outstanding part of the survey. Differences between the proposed survey and the 2004 survey are as follows: 1. The abbreviated report for FR 2436 reporters has been eliminated from the Outstanding survey. Data on credit derivatives are now submitted on the FR 2436. 2. Data items to capture credit default swaps have been added to the Outstanding survey to be consistent with the FR 2436. Given the growth in the credit derivative market, these data are important component of understanding the structure and activity of the overall over–the–counter derivatives market. 3. Additional currencies have been identified in tables on interest rate derivatives and on foreign exchange transactions on both the Outstanding and Turnover surveys. This change will facilitate reporting and ensure comprehensive identification of turnover in all participating countries’ currencies. Reporting central banks will retain discretion to customize this list. 4. The section on electronic trading and identification of execution method has been simplified and adjusted in order to better distinguish between categories on the Turnover survey. 5. The definition of internal and related party trades has been clarified on the Turnover survey in order to improve consistency of data reporting. 6. The two data items in the memorandum section concerning trading activity trends on the Turnover survey have been split into four data items to provide detail on derivative contracts markets since these markets behave very differently.
