The Commodity Futures Trading Commission introduced one interim final rule and two proposed rules on Oct. 1, 2010, the first rules coming out of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, reports Michael J. McFarlin of AdvisorOne.com’s sister publication, FuturesMag.com.

The new rules are designed to bring regulation to swaps and other derivatives, McFarlin writes.

In a separate article appearing in the October issue of Futures magazine, McFarlin wrote about an August 30 CFTC ruling on foreign exchange.
