Did the EU financial regulation cause the Brexit?
Wednesday, 29 June 2016 22:26

Contracts 'that must be physically settled' under MiFID II - the role of balancing agreement with TSOs determined
Tuesday, 21 June 2016 23:00

 

The ability test for "contracts which must be physically settled" (i.e. contracts falling under Sections C6 or C7 of the Annex I of the MiFID Directive, depending upon the place of execution) has taken its final - as it seems - shape.

Position limits: less than one-day divergence in delivery dates between OTC and an exchange-traded contract will not stop the EEOTC qualification
Monday, 13 June 2016 05:00

 

Crafting the EU position limits legal framework seems to require an immense creativity along with an extreme caution on the part of European legislators.

"Equivalent" does not always mean the same - remarks on the ground of the new financial instruments' definition
Thursday, 12 May 2016 22:00

 

Commission Delegated Regulation of 25.4.2016 implementing MiFID II represents the coup de grâce for the hotly-debated topic of equivalency as the criterion for the differentiation of forward contracts being financial instruments from other physically settled OTC derivatives.

 

This step change from purely formal criterion based on the literal wording of the contract to the objective metric dependent only on verifiable trading data seems, however, as it stands, unworkable for legal practitioners.

Inside information on the carbon market - time to build expertise
Monday, 15 February 2016 05:05

 

I'm sure your company has in place documented systems and procedures to conduct - with due diligence -  assessments, which of your emissions data will have the potential to influence on the market price of carbon (or that the said impact is, for example, negligible).

 

No? But, obviously, you have already verified whether your company exceeded, at the group level, the threshold of 6 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent a year or a rated thermal input of 2,430 MW. Not true? I don't believe it! 

 

If, neglecting the above issues, you're counting on the fact that your company is already publishing inside information under the REMIT Regulation, this misunderstanding may have severe consequences.

CCP-cleared trades terminated - not modified (in EMIR reports)
Tuesday, 24 November 2015 05:45

 

Where an existing contract is subsequently cleared by a CCP, it mustn't be reported under EMIR to the trade repository as a modification of the existing contract, but the original contract should be flagged as terminated and the new contract resulting from clearing should be reported.

 

This is the essence of ESMA's recent draft amendments with respect to EMIR reporting of derivatives subject to clearing.

 

It will be also expressly stipulated by the law that when a contract is concluded in a trading venue and cleared on the day of execution, only its cleared form will be reported.
