Quarterly Reports:

Pursuant to 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-Members) 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. These reports are accessed and completed through the EasyFile system. The Form PR templates below are for reference only and should not be filed in hardcopy with NFA.
