The Federal Reserve is working towards easing the Volcker rule, which aims to reduce the heavy risk taking on Wall Street that helped trigger the 2008 financial crisis. The Volker rule was introduced by former Federal Reserve Chairmen Paul Volcker and was endorsed by the Obama Administration as part of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Financial Reform. The rule partially prohibits banks of proprietary trading so they could no longer bet depositors’ money for their own profits.

Fed officials say that this change would resolve some of the uncertainty for banks. The new rule would create a tiered framework, reserving the strictest oversight for the most active trading institutions, while granting smaller, less complex banks greater leeway. It comes amid other government efforts to loosen financial regulations, as President Donald Trump has promised.
