CFTC Provides Notice and Clarification of the Reopened Comment Period for its Rulemaking Proposals on Position Limits for Physical Commodity Derivatives and Aggregation

Washington, DC — The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC or Commission) has submitted for publication in the Federal Register a clarification and notice regarding the reopened comment periods for two Position Limit rulemakings.

On December 9, 2014, the Commission’s Agricultural Advisory Committee held a public meeting that considered, among other matters, deliverable supply and exemptions for bona fide hedging positions. To provide commenters with sufficient time to respond to questions raised and points made at the meeting, the Commission reopened the comment periods for an additional 45 days, from December 9, 2014 to January 22, 2015.

The Commission is providing notice and clarification that, in addition to commenting on the agenda issues, comments may be made on the issues addressed at the meeting or in the associated materials posted to the Commission’s website, as they pertain to agricultural commodities.

The notice will appear in the Federal Register on Monday, Jan. 5, 2015. Comments may be submitted electronically through the CFTC’s Comments Online process. All comments will be posted on the CFTC’s website.
