CFTC Issues No-Action Relief for Aggregation Notice Filings for Position Limits

Today, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC or Commission) issued time-limited no-action relief for aggregation notice filings for position limits.

Specifically, any person or entity that is eligible to rely on an exemption from aggregation under Regulation 150.4(b) will not need to comply with the notice filing requirements until August 14, 2017. Without the relief, notice filings would have been required for 150.4(b)exemptions beginning on the rule’s effective date of February 14, 2017.

The Commission notes that market participants may choose to file a notice with the Commission in a portal that will be available beginning on February 11, 2017.
