MARKET RISK: The Fed put on hold its July 1995 proposal to let banks decide for themselves how much capital to set aside for market risk. It plans to resume work on the regulation after the current interagency market-risk proposal (see "Comments Closed") is completed.

INTEREST RATE RISK: In August 1995, the Fed, FDIC, and OCC proposed a framework for measuring banks' exposure to interest rate swings; this would eventually lead to an interest rate risk capital standard. But word from within the agencies is that the capital rule is dead, although they may still add rate risk questions to call reports. Published Aug. 2. Comments were due Oct. 2.
