CFTC Announces Schedule for Publication of Reports Delayed by the Government Shutdown

Washington, DC – The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) announced an anticipated publication schedule today for reports delayed by the recent U.S. Government shutdown.

The CFTC will begin issuing its weekly Commitments of Traders (COT) reports on a rolling basis as soon as they are ready – with the first report being published on October 25, 2013. If not for the shutdown, this report would have been published on October 4, 2013. The CFTC expects to release two more of the delayed COT reports during the week of October 28, 2013 and at least two more of the delayed COT reports during the week of November 4, 2013. The CFTC expects that it will resume its previously announced COT report schedule by the November 8, 2013 release date.

The Cotton-on-Call reports that have been delayed will also be released on a rolling schedule as they are ready. The CFTC expects that the release of the Cotton-on-Call reports will be back on schedule by the November 7, 2013 release date.

The Bank Participation Report originally scheduled for release on October 4, 2013 will be released on October 25, 2013.
