Wall Street Called Out by Regulators for Stalling on Swaps Rule

U.S. regulators are getting fed up with Wall Street’s attempts to stall a restriction on risky swaps trades.

Getting another reprieve is crucial for banks, because it would give them time to persuade a Republican-led Congress to kill the requirement.
