The Elimination of the Volcker Rule Will Be Big for Banks

(New York)

The Trump era of deregulation is really starting to play out for the financial services industry. On top of the collapse of the Volcker rule, banks might be about to enjoy a major concession from regulators: the assumption that short-term trades are automatically a violation of the rule. The Fed and other regulators are planning to drop the assumption that a position held by a bank for less than 60 days is a violation of the Volcker rule.

FINSUM : This would be a major development as banks would be left to comply with the rule on their own terms. That shifts the burden of proof onto regulators, who would now need to prove a trade was a violation.
