CFTC agrees more delays to reforms

A wave of new delays to financial reforms has been approved by the US derivatives regulator as Wall Street scrambles to meet a year-end deadline for compliance.

Since the start of the month the Commodity Futures Trading Commission has issued 20 letters postponing enforcement of new rules for dealers as the $639tn off-exchange derivatives market is regulated for the first time.
