New US regulations released Tuesday place tight controls on banks' trading their own accounts, in an attempt to avoid the high-risk behavior that contributed to the 2008 financial crisis. The long-awaited Volcker Rule, to come into effect on July 21, 2015, also forbids banks from owning hedge funds or so-called covered private equity funds, also with the aim of distancing them from financially risky activities.
