Abstract

This note discusses the case for exempting foreign exchange derivatives from recent regulatory requirements for over-the-counter derivatives, including clearing, trade competition, and minimum collateral requirements. My conclusion is that the arguments that have been made for such an exemption are not sufficient. I focus mainly on the question of clearing, which figures prominently in arguments favoring exemption.
