In a document published in the Federal Register of August 12, 2004 (69 FR 49784), the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“Commission”) announced amendments to Commission rules relating to the minimum financial and related reporting requirements for futures commission merchants and introducing brokers. As discussed in the preamble, at page 49791, footnote 36, the amendments included technical corrections to revise references to “1.17(a)(1)(ii)” to read “1.17(a)(1)(iii)” within Rules 1.10(j)(8) and 1.17(a)(2), in order to reflect prior Commission rulemaking that had redesignated Rule 1.17(a)(1)(ii). However, these technical corrections were inadvertently omitted from the amendatory language in the published document, and the amendatory language also contained typographical errors. This document corrects both the omission and the typographical errors in the published document.Start Amendment Part
