The National Futures Association issued a reminder to persons or entities operating under an exemption or exclusion from registration as a commodity pool operator or an exemption from registration as a commodity trading advisor regarding their annual obligation to affirm their status by filing a notice with it. The required notice must be filed with the NFA within 60 days of year-end (thus, the required notice for year-end 2014 must be filed by March 2, 2015).
