CFTC says to consider SEF rules next week Thursday


WASHINGTON, May 9 (Reuters) - The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) said it would hold a public meeting to consider rules for so-called Swap Execution Facilities (SEFs) - platforms on which to trade swaps - on Thursday, May 16.

The CFTC, the top U.S. derivatives regulator, said it would also look at a set of related rules, such as the minimum block size for swaps, and the process by which market operators need to make swaps available for trade. (Reporting by Douwe Miedema)
