U.S. regulators publish progress report on Treasury market overhaul – Reuters

WASHINGTON, Nov 8 (Reuters) – U.S. regulators are assessing potential policies to increase the resilience of the U.S. Treasury market, including improving market data quality, boosting oversight of trading venues, and introducing central clearing, according to a Treasury Department-led report published on Monday.

After a massive sell-off in March 2020 prompted the U.S. Federal Reserve to buy $1.6 trillion of Treasuries to increase stability, regulators have been studying ways to improve market resilience.
