Must CPOs register with the SEC before trading security futures for a fund?

It depends. SEC registration is not automatically required. However, you may be required to register a fund as an investment company and the CPO as an investment adviser if the fund's security futures activities (combined with its other securities activities) bring it within the Investment Company Act's definition of investment company, although hedge fund exemptions may apply.
