Abstract: 

U.S. customers may only trade foreign exchange-traded broad-based index futures contracts if the contracts (and options thereon) meet certain criteria and may only trade foreign exchange-traded security futures contracts if they adhere to the terms of an SEC order and CFTC advisory. In this article, the authors discuss the specific rules applicable to these products and several related subjects, including requirements for intermediaries (brokers). They close with a discussion of cross-border enforcement considerations.
