Current actions: The Federal Reserve proposes to revise the frequency of both parts of the survey in response to recent changes in the demand for these data by the Board members. The Reserve Bank part of the survey would be conducted as economic events dictate (about three times per year).

Abstract: Data are collected on notional amounts and gross market values of outstanding OTC derivatives contracts for broad categories of market risk: foreign exchange, interest rate, equities, commodities, and credit. For the different types of market risk except commodities, further detail is collected on the underlying market risk of each contract–– the underlying currency, equity market, or reference entity (borrower). This collection of information complements the triennial Central Bank Survey of Foreign Exchange and Derivatives Market Activity (FR 3036; OMB No. 7100– 0285). The FR 2436 collects similar data on the outstanding volume of derivatives, but not on derivatives turnover.
