The Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s Division of Market Oversight extended relief granted in 2017 from a Commission regulation that requires certain persons otherwise required to aggregate their futures and related options positions with those of certain other affiliated persons for CFTC position limit purposes to file a notice of an available exemption from such requirement prior to relying on the exemption. Under the relief, a person may act on an eligible exemption without an advance filing, but must file a notice within five business days after being requested to do so by the Commission or a designated contract market. The next expiration of the no-action relief is August 12, 2022. Without the extension, the relief would have expired on August 12, 2019.
