- Until August 12, 2025, CPOs and CTAs may continue to file
position limit disaggregation notices upon request, rather than
prospectively, and exempt CTAs may continue to rely upon the
“independent account controller” disaggregation
On August 10, 2022, staff of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading
Commission (CFTC) issued No-Action Letter 22-09,1 which
provides relief with respect to the position limit disaggregation
notice filing requirements under Rule 150.4(c),2 as well
as certain other interpretive relief. The letter marks the second
extension of all relief originally provided in CFTC No-Action
Letter 17-37 until the earlier of August 12, 2025, and the
effective date of a rulemaking codifying the no-action relief.

federal position limits for the first time. Accordingly, staff
indicated that it intends to use the additional three-year period
of aggregation relief to assess the impact of such relief on the
expanded federal position limits regime and consider whether to
recommend codifying the relief through a formal notice and comment
2 The CFTC’s position limit aggregation rules are
codified under 17 CFR 150.4(c).
