Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs)

A Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) is an individual or organization which, for compensation or profit, advises others, directly or indirectly, as to the value of or the advisability of buying or selling futures contracts, commodity options, retail off-exchange forex contracts or swaps. Providing advice indirectly includes exercising trading authority over a customer's account as well as giving advice through written publications or other media.

A CTA must deliver a Disclosure Document for the offered program to a prospective client prior to or when it delivers the advisory agreement to the client. More...
