Financial Requirements

Quarterly and Annual Reports

Under NFA Compliance Rule 2-46, CTAs are required to file quarterly reports within 45 days of the calendar quarter end. Pursuant to CFTC Regulation 4.27, all CTAs, even non-Member CTAs, that direct trading of commodity interests are required to file an annual CTA PR report within 45 days of the calendar year end. NFA Member CTAs can meet their CFTC filing requirement by filing the NFA CTA PR form for that quarter. Both reports must be filed electronically using NFA's EasyFile system. The CTA PR report requires each CTA to report general information about the CTA and its trading programs. Additionally, each CTA PR report filed after its due date will be subject to a late filing fee.
