However, banks can keep any funds that are less than three percent of revenue.The Volcker Rule does allow some trading when it's necessary for the bank to run its business. For example, banks can engage in currency trading to offset their own holdings in a foreign currency. But the Volcker rule is not in place yet, and some of its rules are still being decided. It is scheduled to go into effect in July 2012. However, regulators say they might not have all the rules in place by then. Dodd-Frank requires that the riskiest derivatives, like credit default swaps be regulated by the
There are a few exceptions to the Volcker Rule, but banks must also document their compliance with the exemption written. At a minimum, the proposed rule would require that a banking entity's compliance program include describing and monitoring the entity's covered fund activities and investments, while identifying potential areas of non-compliance, and enforcing the compliance program effectively (Richards). With such a rigorous program, companies will have to continuous check if their debt securities meet up against the standards of the Volcker Rule, changing the classification of a security when it doesn’t comply with the act.

The bigger the bank, the greater resentment they have over this act. Their financial statements will have to retain a greater amount of compliance and transparency as well. Because of the large prominence of “shadow banking” and the concealed balance sheet elements that came along with this practice, the banks now are imposed with greater regulation to prevent these stealthy tactics of borrowing and investing. These restrictions, in my belief, will provide greater protection to the consumer but will also provoke institutions to begin innovating financial instruments to get around barriers, just as they did in the past with interstate banking and early consolidated services even before Glass-Steagalls act. The bankers oppose the act due to their cut in profits. Reduced outlets in revenue from specific revenue generating activities have been capped and larger expenses in order to comply with the new rules have also greatly cut profitability. The same notion is held with brokers. Because of the greater compliance costs served

Consumers are not signing up to become members of the program and since the Dojo just recently opened, it does not currently have a well known and established reputation in the community. Since opening in September at 40A Brydon Dr, Etobicoke the business has struggled with acquiring a substantial amount of new members and currently has only 36 members, with a monthly membership fee of $114.99.

A key opportunity to take advantage of is the Dojo’s location and the high quality training
