With the Obama administration calling for "a strong mechanism to regulate derivatives", the US Senate begins its discussions this week on proposed legislation. The US is at a turning point in the derivatives debate. Speculations, observations and assumptions are coming to an end and will be replaced with a new status quo for the industry in the US. Meanwhile, The European Commission continues to pursue its own reform of the derivatives industry.
