  • On February 9, 2012, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) adopted amendments to several of its rules affecting commodity pool operator (CPO) and commodity trading advisor (CTA) registration and compliance requirements. The adopted amendments are similar to the changes proposed by the CFTC in January 2011, with certain modifications. Importantly, the CFTC maintained the Regulation 4.13(a)(3) de minimus exemption, which was recommended for elimination in last year’s proposal.
