MiFIR Trading Obligation for Derivatives and Third Country Equivalence

The European Commission has recognised some US trading venues authorised by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”) as eligible for compliance with the EU trading obligation for derivatives.  This follows an agreement between the European Commission and the CFTC on a common approach regarding certain derivatives trading platforms. According to the European Commission, this means that EU counterparties will be able to continue to trade the most liquid derivatives instruments on US platforms.
