Reminder to CPOs regarding upcoming due date for quarterly pool report
This is a reminder that the September 30th quarterly pool report required by NFA Compliance Rule 2-46 is due to NFA on November 14, 2011. You are receiving this message because NFA’s records indicate that you have not yet completed the filing requirement for one or more of your pools. Please note that each Member CPO is required to file a quarterly report for each active pool that it operates as long as the pool has a reporting requirement under CFTC Regulation 4.22.
The report itself covers the three-month calendar quarter ending September 30, 2011 and it must be filed electronically through NFA’s EasyFile System. You can view a list of your pools and the applicable report due dates by logging onto EasyFile using this link: https://www.nfa.futures.org/appentry/Redirect.aspx?app=EASYFILEPOOL. PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU HAVE A QUALIFYING POOL THAT DID NOT OPERATE BEFORE OR DURING THE QUARTER ENDING SEPTEMBER 30, 2011, YOU MUST STILL ACCESS THE EASYFILE SYSTEM AND DELETE THE POOL’S QUARTERLY STATEMENT CALL USING THE DELETE ICON ON THE MAIN POOL INDEX LISTING.
Please ensure that the September quarterly reports are filed by the due date. Failure to file this report, and/or previous quarterly reports timely, is an apparent violation of NFA Rules, that could subject your firm to disciplinary action. Questions concerning the reporting requirements should be directed to NFA’s Information Center at 312-781-1410 or 800-621-3570.***
