Re: Withdrawal of February 9, 2006 Petitions for Rulemaking

Dear Mr. Stawick:

On February 9, 2006, National Futures Association (NFA) filed two petitions for rulemaking with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC" or "Commission"). One petition asked the Commission to amend CFTC Regulation 4.7, and the other asked the Commission to amend CFTC Regulations 4.7, 4.13, and 4.22.

NFA hereby withdraws the two February 9, 2006 petitions for rulemaking in light of the Commission's proposed rules regarding Commodity Pool Operator Periodic Account Statements and Annual Financial Reports (74 Fed. Reg. 8220, Feb. 24, 2009). While the proposed rules do not provide all the relief NFA requested, they address several issues contained in NFA's petitions. Therefore, NFA's Board of Directors voted to withdraw the petitions.

Respectfully submitted,

Thomas W. Sexton
Senior Vice President and General Counsel
