Notice I-18-07

March 27, 2018

Reminder to update annual questionnaire regarding virtual currencies

On December 14, 2017, NFA issued Notices I-17-28 and I-17-29 requiring commodity pool operators (CPO) and commodity trading advisors (CTA) that execute transactions involving virtual currencies or virtual currency derivatives and introducing brokers (IB) that solicit or accept orders in virtual currency derivatives to immediately notify NFA by amending the firm-level section of the annual questionnaire. NFA reminds CPOs, CTAs and IBs that this is an ongoing obligation.

Notices I-17-28 and I-17-29 also described additional reporting requirements for these CPOs, CTAs and IBs. The purpose of this notice is to inform CPOs, CTAs and IBs that NFA is not requiring the filing of this additional information at this time. NFA may, however, reach out to individual firms to request information as needed.

If you have any questions regarding this notice, please contact Christine Roche, Associate Director, Compliance (croche@nfa.futures.org or 312-781-1562) or Mary McHenry, Associate Director, Compliance (mmchenry@nfa.futures.org or 312-781-1420).
