Date: 2009-08-06
Agency: Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Agencies and Commissions
Regulation 7.201 of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``Commission'') alters and supplements Chicago Board of Trade (``CBOT'') Rule 620.01(B) by requiring members of the CBOT to submit to arbitration of any customer claim or grievance initiated by the customer according to the arbitration rules and regulations of the CBOT. On November 25, 2007, following the merger of Chicago Mercantile Exchange (``CME'') Holdings, Inc. with CBOT Holdings, Inc., CBOT Rule 620.01(B) was superseded by new CBOT Rule 600.D. Like Regulation 7.201, new Rule 600.D specifically requires exchange members to submit to customer-initiated arbitrations. Accordingly, on petition of The CME Group Inc., CBOT's parent company, Regulation 7.201 is being repealed by the Commission as no longer necessary.
