The Commodity Futures Trading Commission has re-opened the comment period on (1) its proposed rules establishing position limits on certain exempt and agricultural commodities and (2) its proposed amendments to its aggregation policies with regard to such position limits. The CFTC anticipates that the extended comment period will address questions and comments from the February 26 meeting of the CFTC’s Energy and Environmental Markets Advisory Committee. In addition to reopening the comment period, the CFTC updated the numbers of unique persons exceeding the proposed position limit levels to reflect data for the two-year period ending December 31, 2014.

The new comment period extends through March 28. The CFTC’s announcement of its re-opening of the comment period is available here; the notice published in the Federal Register is available here.
