The Commodity Futures Trading Commission issued a Notice of Intent and a simultaneous Opinion and Order that prohibits Steven A. Cohen from engaging in any activity that requires registration with the Commission or acting as an officer or person of any person that is registered or required to be registered with the Commission until at least December 31, 2017, or such later date that the Securities and Exchange Commission might extend its equivalent prohibition that expires on the same day.(Click here for details regarding the SEC action against Mr. Cohen in the article, “Steven A. Cohen Barred by SEC From Serving as Hedge Fund Supervisor for Two Years for Alleged Supervisory Failures; No Fine Assessed” in the January 10, 2016 edition of Bridging the Week.) Mr. Cohen is the principal and indirect owner and controller of S.A.C. Capital Advisors, LLC, and S.A.C. Capital Advisors L.P., entities formerly registered unconditionally with the Commission as commodity trading advisors and commodity pool operators. In the case of SAC Capital LLC, these registrations were revoked by the CFTC in September 2014, while the registrations of SAC Capital LP were severely limited.
