The Commodity Futures Trading Commission has withdrawn its January proposal to establish federal speculative position limits for futures and option contracts on certain energy products. In its withdrawal notice, the CFTC cited the significant revisions to the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA) introduced by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The CFTC plans to issue a notice of rulemaking and propose position limits for exempt and agricultural commodity derivatives, including energy derivatives, in compliance with the CEA as amended by the Dodd-Frank Act (which requires the CFTC to establish limits for exempt and agricultural commodity derivatives within 180 days and 270 days, respectively, of the date of enactment of the Dodd-Frank Act).
