At an open meeting of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) held via video conference on October 15, 2020, the CFTC adopted final amendments to the federal position limits rules for commodity futures contracts and new position limit rules for economically equivalent swaps (the Final Rules). The Final Rules implement provisions enacted by Congress in Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the Dodd-Frank Act) in 2010. They represent the CFTC’s fifth attempt to adopt federal position limit rules.
