What is the definition of a Volcker Rule?

The Volcker Rule is a subsection of the Dodd-Frank act (named after former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker), which attempts to limit the risky, speculative trading activities of hedge funds and investment banks.

The Volcker Rule limits banks to only investing 3% of their total capital in prop trading and to reduce the exposure of banks to hedge funds.
