Effective Date of NFA Compliance Rules 2-41 and 2-42: Disclosure by Forex Pool Operators and Trading Advisors
NFA has received notice that the Commodity Futures Trading Commission has approved NFA Compliance Rules 2-41 and 2-42. The new rules will become effective on November 30, 2008. Accordingly, after November 30th Members that manage forex accounts on behalf of customers or offer pools trading forex must provide prospective clients and pool participants with a disclosure document that has been filed with NFA prior to use. The new rules only apply if the forex pool or the person for whom the forex account is being managed is not an eligible contract participant as defined in Section 1a(12) of the Commodity Exchange Act. A forex pool, however, may not claim to be an eligible contract participant by virtue of Section 1a(12)(A)(v)(II) or (III) of the Commodity Exchange Act.
The disclosure document must provide disclosures similar to those currently required under CFTC Part 4 regulations. Finally, a Member operating a pool subject to the new rules must provide periodic (monthly or quarterly) account statements and an annual report to the pool participants.
Copies of the new rules are attached for your convenience. Additionally, NFA’s February 29, 2008, submission letter to the CFTC contains a more detailed explanation of the changes. You can access an electronic copy of the submission letter at http://www.nfa.futures.org/news/newsRuleSubLetter.asp?ArticleID=2101.
