NFA updates tutorial videos

National Futures Association (NFA) offers a variety of educational and training opportunities to help Members understand their regulatory obligations. To do so, NFA regularly reviews its Member education materials to ensure they are up-to-date and relevant.

"NFA's website is a resource rich with educational materials including video tutorials, regulatory guides, webinars, Board Update videos, and relevant Member workshop materials," says Karen Wuertz, Senior Vice President of Strategic Planning and Development.

In July, NFA refreshed two online tutorials.

Swap Dealers and Major Swap Participants

To showcase the recent Registration Documentation Submission System (RDSS) enhancements, NFA updated the video tutorial, "The Registration Process: The 4s Document Submission Process for Swap Dealers and Major Swap Participants." This tutorial demonstrates the 4s submission process.

Commodity Pool Operators and Commodity Trading Advisors

In addition, NFA replaced a previously recorded webinar with a more accessible video tutorial, "Filing a Disclosure Document." This video tutorial, intended for commodity pool operators and commodity trading advisors, explains the process of electronically filing a disclosure document and highlights common mistakes made by CPOs and CTAs when preparing disclosure documents.

These videos, along with all of NFA's video tutorials, are available in NFA's video library.

"Although our website is full of resources, Members should never hesitate to contact NFA with any questions or issues," continues Wuertz. "The Contact NFA link on the website contains contact information for senior staff, listed by subject matter expertise."

Share your feedback! If you have suggestions for additional video tutorials or other Member educational materials, please email them to Communications Manager Kristen Scaletta at We value your input.

NFA is the premier independent provider of efficient and innovative regulatory programs that safeguard the integrity of the derivatives markets.
