Agency: Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (Commission) periodically reviews its policies and rules pertaining to the regulatory framework for speculative position limits, including the speculative position limits set out in Commission regulation 150.2 (Federal speculative position limits). In this regard, the Commission has reviewed the existing levels for Federal speculative position limits and is now proposing to increase these limits for all single- month and all-months-combined positions. In addition, the Commission is proposing to delete several obsolete provisions that relate to contracts that are no longer listed for trading or to DCMs that no longer exist. The Commission is requesting comment on these rule amendments.
