Has ETD Reporting Really Been Delayed? | No Confirmation from the European Commission
In a story a while back I was probably over-selling the request by ESMA to move the start date for Exchange Traded Derivatives back by a year. Since then I believed my own hype until recently when I began hearing that regulators are pointing out that the ESMA request has not been granted, and therefore the start date for ETD reporting is still timed to occur at the same time as OTC products on February 12th 2014. If anyone can contribute further evidence for the current thinking in Europe on the ESMA request – add it in the comments or let me know direct. Bill.
