The Australian Securities & Investments Commission’s case against three of the "big four" banks over allegations that they manipulated the bank bill swap rate will be heard by the Federal Court on 23 October. Some observers believe that the parties could reach a settlement before the case begins, although this would require the banks to admit that they had engaged in unconscionable conduct. Meanwhile, stock exchange operator ASX Limited has issued new guidelines regarding bank bill trading in the wake of the BBSW scandal.
