Federal Register: CFTC Amends Position Limits for Security Futures Products

The CFTC final rule adopting amendments to the Position Limits and Position Accountability for Security Futures Products ("SFP") was published in the Federal Register. The amendments will go into effect on November 26, 2019.

As previously covered, the amendments will increase current position limits that apply solely to SFPs, and harmonize them with limits set for equity options traded on a securities exchange.
