Re: RIN 3038-AE22: Residual Interest Deadline for Futures Commission Merchants
Dear Mr. Kirkpatrick:
National Futures Association (NFA) appreciates the opportunity to comment on the Commodity Futures Trading Commission's (CFTC or Commission) proposed amendment to the Residual Interest Deadline in Commission Rule 1.22. NFA supports the proposed amendment, which would remove the December 31, 2018 automatic termination date for the phase-in compliance period, preserving the Residual Interest Deadline of 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the date of settlement and requiring that any revision to the Residual Interest Deadline be accomplished through a separate rulemaking.
NFA understands that Commission staff is studying the practicability and costs and benefits of revising the Residual Interest Deadline. NFA encourages the Commission to consider industry comment on the timing and parameters of the study to ensure that the Commission has the most complete information available to evaluate potential changes to the Residual Interest Deadline. As always, please do not hesitate to contact NFA if we can provide Commission staff with any assistance with this study.
If you have any questions concerning this letter, please do not hesitate to contact the undersigned at (312) 781-1413 or email@example.com or Carol Wooding at (312) 781-1409 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Very truly yours,
Thomas W. Sexton, III Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary
