Notice of Determinations; Culturally Significant Objects Imported for Exhibition-Determinations: “Tomma Abts” Exhibition, 46008-46009 [2018-19717]

Download as PDF 46008 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 176 / Tuesday, September 11, 2018 / Notices daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES the proposed rule change would help improve the effectiveness of the EOD price discovery process by specifically requiring the clearing risk department to consult the trading advisory committee, which would provide insight into current market dynamics and conditions. Therefore, for the above reasons the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with Rule 17Ad–22(e)(2)(i).41 C. Consistency With Rule 17Ad– 22(e)(6)(ii) Rule 17Ad–22(e)(6)(ii) requires that ICE Clear Europe establish, implement, maintain and enforce written policies and procedures reasonably designed to cover its credit exposures to its participants by establishing a risk-based margin system that marks participant positions to market and collects margin, including variation margin or equivalent charges if relevant, at least daily and includes the authority and operational capacity to make intraday margin calls in defined circumstances.42 As discussed above, the proposed rule change would enhance ICE Clear Europe’s EOD price discovery by amending the Price Discovery Policy to (1) compute a consensus BOW for each benchmark single-name instrument; (2) determine the final EOD BOW as the greater of an instrument’s final systematic BOW and a dynamic BOW; and (3) eliminate the use of the ISDA CDS Standard Model from the computation of BOWs for single-name instruments. The Commission believes that these changes, taken together, would help enhance ICE Clear Europe’s ability to determine the EOD BOW for singlename CDS instruments. By eliminating the use of the ISDA CDS Standard Model from the computation of singlename BOWs, accepting submissions only in price terms, and computing a consensus BOW for each benchmark single-name CDS instrument, the Commission believes the proposed rule change would help ICE Clear Europe to determine BOWs more consistently across single-name instruments on all reference entities, including those for which little intraday data is available. In addition, as noted above, the dynamic BOW would widen BOWs in response to the observed dispersion of pricespace levels submitted in the EOD price discovery process. Thus, by determining the final EOD BOW as the greater of an instrument’s final systematic BOW and a dynamic BOW, the Commission 41 17 42 17 CFR 240.17Ad–22(e)(2)(i). CFR 240.17Ad–22(e)(6)(ii). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:49 Sep 10, 2018 believes the proposed rule change would help the BOW to better reflect current market conditions. Consequently, the Commission believes that the proposed rule change would help improve ICE Clear Europe’s EOD pricing process by taking into account additional relevant information and considering a wider range of instruments in the pricing process. Because ICE Clear Europe uses EOD prices to mark participant positions to market and establish and collect margin, including variation margin, the Commission believes that improvements to the EOD pricing process would also enhance ICE Clear Europe’s covering of credit exposures to its participants and collection of margin. Moreover, the Commission believes the governance enhancements described above would help ensure that ICE Clear Europe’s clearing risk department maintains an effective EOD price discovery process and takes into account current market conditions by consulting with the trading advisory committee. The Commission therefore believes that the proposed rule change would help establish and maintain written policies and procedures reasonably designed to cover ICE Clear Europe’s credit exposures to its participants by establishing a risk-based margin system that marks participant positions to market and collects margin, including variation margin. Therefore, for the above reasons the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with Rule 17Ad–22(e)(6)(ii).43 D. Consistency With Rule 17Ad– 22(e)(6)(iv) Rule 17Ad–22(e)(6)(iv) requires that ICE Clear Europe establish, implement, maintain and enforce written policies and procedures reasonably designed to cover its credit exposures to its participants by establishing a risk-based margin system that uses reliable sources of timely price data and uses procedures and sound valuation models for addressing circumstances in which pricing data are not readily available or reliable.44 As discussed above, the proposed rule change would help improve the pricing data that ICE Clear Europe uses in its margin system. Specifically, the proposed rule change would, as discussed above, enhance the computation of BOWs for single-name CDS instruments by amending the Price Discovery Policy to (1) compute a consensus BOW for each benchmark 43 17 44 17 Jkt 244001 PO 00000 CFR 240.17Ad–22(e)(6)(ii).

Because ICE Clear Europe uses BOWs to determine EOD price levels, the Commission believes that improvements in the collection and calculation of BOWs would improve the accuracy and reliability of ICE Clear Europe’s EOD price levels. Finally, because ICE Clear Europe uses its EOD price levels to mark participant positions to market and establish and collect margin, including variation margin, the Commission believes that the proposed rule change would help ensure that the ICE Clear Europe’s margin system uses reliable sources of timely price data. Therefore, for the above reasons the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with Rule 17Ad–22(e)(6)(iv).45 IV. Conclusion On the basis of the foregoing, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with the requirements of the Act, and in particular with the requirements of Section 17A(b)(3)(F) of the Act 46 and Rules 17Ad–22(e)(2)(i), (e)(6)(ii), and (e)(6)(iv) thereunder.47 It is therefore ordered pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act 48 that the proposed rule change (SR–ICEEU–2018– 009) be, and hereby is, approved.49 For the Commission, by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority.50 Eduardo A.
