    I am Mark Reback, and here is how my family and I were affected by the financial crisis. My family lost close to $300,000 in the stock market crash caused by greed and lies from Wall Street and the big banks. Americans should never again be called on to bail out big corporations and Wall Street banks for their irresponsible “heads I win, tails you lose” gambles.

    We must have oversight of the $700 trillion global derivatives market WITH TEETH! We need meaningful reform. As you are aware, this market is inherently global, risks can be transferred around the world with the touch of a button. The proposed guidance you have issued on cross-border application of Dodd-Frank derivatives rules shows that you understand the importance of this issue. But the proposal contains multiple loopholes that could allow foreign affiliates of Wall Street banks to escape regulation. Big U.S. banks and other major U.S. derivatives users are global corporations with hundreds if not thousands of foreign affiliates. If we don’t regulate them everywhere, we can’t regulate them anywhere.

    Please make this guidance stronger to ensure that new Dodd-Frank derivatives protections will directly apply to the full global activities of all important participants in the U.S. derivatives markets.
