CFTC Seeks Comments on Amended EFRP Rule


On September 19, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission requested public comments on proposed amendments to the exchange for related position (EFRP) rules and Market Regulation Advisory Notice of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the Board of Trade of the City of Chicago, the New York Mercantile Exchange, the Commodity Exchange and the Board of Trade of Kansas City. The proposed revisions would prohibit transitory EFRPs and EFRP transactions between commonly controlled accounts. The revised rules and guidance also would prohibit the use of EFRPs to transfer funds between parties, permit the use of certain EFRP transactions in connection with inventory financing and clarify the recordkeeping and trade data submission requirements for EFRPs.
