RULE 2-33. FCM RECEIPT OF FUNDS FROM OMNIBUS ACCOUNTS.
[Adopted effective July 24, 1990.]

Each FCM must give notice to its DSRO or, if so directed by its DSRO, to NFA whenever the FCM accepts other than immediately available funds from an FCM doing business on an omnibus basis. Notice must be received within 24 hours of such acceptance. For purposes of this Rule, wire transfers and certified checks shall be considered immediately available funds for which notice is not required.
