Position Limits and Position Accountability for Security Futures Products
Document Number: 2019-20476
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-09-27
Agency: Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``CFTC'' or ``Commission'') is issuing a final rule to amend the position limit rules applicable to security futures products (``SFP'') by increasing the default maximum level of equity SFP position limits that designated contract markets (``DCMs'') may set; modifying the criteria for setting a higher position limit and position accountability level by relying primarily on estimated deliverable supply; and adjusting the time during which position limits or position accountability must be in effect. In addition, the final rule will provide DCMs discretion to apply limits to either a person's net position or a person's position on the same side of the market. The rule also includes position limit requirements and related guidance and acceptable practices for DCMs to apply in adopting position limits for SFPs based on products other than an equity security.
