Goldilocks’ Comments and Global Economic News for September 13th
Market Announcement: China Securities Regulatory Commission is expanding the range of their assets to allow Infrastructure REITs (real estate assets).
The CSRC is equivalent to the SEC in the US. They are the regulatory body that oversees the Trading Assets in China. Everything is being tokenized and traded on the market supported by a commodity asset. This will give our market assets around the world a Level Playing Field real value including Forex that deals with foreign currency. © Goldilocks Linkedin Link

“CME Group and DTCC’s enhanced treasury cross-margining arrangement receives SEC and CFTC approval.
The arrangement will allow eligible clearing members to gain increased margin efficiencies between US treasury securities and CME Group interest rate futures, with an expected launch in January 2024.”
Cross-margin trading allows securities to be traded from one asset class to another holding liquidity for future margin calls.
There are a lot of directions I can go with this information, but I know many in this room are interested in the foreign currency direction.
A cross-margin arrangement can be agreed upon with the price of a foreign currency and used as collateral in making trades that will help an investor obtain an asset through what is called a cross-margin investment.
In other words, foreign currencies are expected to have a higher value in the future and can be used as collateral security for these trades. And, since foreign currency is considered a security and a commodity in the near term, the SEC and CFTC are involved in overseeing these transactions.

“Fair trade laws were enacted by states in the 1930s to allow manufacturers to set prices for their products by retailers. The laws were enacted by almost every state to counteract the constant price fluctuations brought on by the Great Depression. Manufacturers wanted to set price minimums for retailers on their products because they feared that too low of prices diminished brand or product value as seen by consumers. The practice gradually was eliminated by states as international trade increased which limited enforceability of fair trade laws, and in 1975 Congress enacted legislation that made fair trade laws illegal under the Sherman Antitrust Act.”
This is another Level Playing Field mechanism that is coming into effect known as the “fair trading bill.”
You will see why this has to take effect as our Market systems all over the world are transitioning.
This new revised bill will minimize merchants from undercutting each other in the sale of their goods and services during a monetary crisis.
Can you see what’s happening today? They are preparing us for a transition into the new economy.

Washington, D.C. — The Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s Division of Clearing and Risk today issued a no-action letter providing that DCR will not recommend the CFTC take enforcement action against Taiwan Futures Exchange (TAIFEX) for failing to register as a derivatives clearing organization (DCO) as required by Section 5b(a) of the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA).
Today’s no-action letter extends CFTC Letter 22-12, which expires September 15. The extension will be until the earlier of March 15, 2024 or the date on which the CFTC exempts TAIFEX from registration as a DCO under Section 5b(h) of the CEA.
Like CFTC Letter 22-12, today’s no-action letter is limited to TAIFEX’s clearing of the proprietary trades of U.S. clearing members and their affiliates.
