Anti-Manipulation in Energy Market Regulation & Compliance Training
I am pleased to announce that I have been selected by a renowned international conference provider to conduct a two-day seminar titled “Anti-Manipulation in Energy Market Regulation & Compliance.” The seminar will be held on October 8-9, 2013, at NBC Tower in Chicago. I look forward to conducting this important seminar as part of my law firm’s ongoing efforts to educate market participants about the importance of an ongoing and proactive approach to energy trading compliance.
The seminar will be a comprehensive, in-depth, examination of some current and past developments relevant to anti-manipulation regulation and compliance. In particular, I intend to focus on identifying and preventing manipulative conduct in the energy trading arena. To that end, I plan to examine some recent regulatory and enforcement developments. In particular, I will analyze certain trading and hedging strategies that recently have been identified as potentially manipulative. i plan to examine the risks associated with trading physical and financial positions at same delivery points, anti-disruptive trading practices, uneconomic trading, dynamic hedging, and anti-manipulative conduct under the Dodd-Frank Act.
Also, I plan to offer an overview of the best industry practices and standards for creating and implementing a culture of compliance within an energy marketing organization. Further, I will examine some unique steps that physical energy companies can implement to minimize their exposure to an inadvertent violation of the anti-manipulation rules. In addition, the seminar will identify and offer solutions for the best practices in documentation negotiation and drafting including master trading agreements, confirmations, credit, and collateral and netting agreements.
