    CFTC Staff to Host Public Roundtable June 19, 2014 Regarding Position Limits for Physical Commodity Derivatives

    The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) staff will hold a public roundtable on Thursday, June 19, 2014, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., to discuss position limits for physical commodity derivatives.

    The roundtable will focus on hedges of a physical commodity by a commercial enterprise, including gross hedging, cross-commodity hedging, anticipatory hedging, and the process for obtaining a non-enumerated exemption. Discussion will include the setting of spot month limits in physical-delivery and cash-settled contracts and a conditional spot-month limit exemption. Further, discussion will include aggregation of positions based on ownership interests of greater than 50 percent of an owned entity and aggregation based on substantially identical trading strategies.
