10. Futures 101: NFA Bylaw 1101 and Aiding and Abetting - What Do You Need to Know About Your Customer?
This session will focus on the basics of NFA Bylaw 1101 requirements including available exemptions from CPO status, discuss the nature of CPOs and CTAs, and how and why clearing firms have to make these determinations if a customer should be registered (as a CPO, CTA or FCM) and what it means to the member who does not do adequate diligence. The panel will also discuss the CBOE circular regarding CPO/CTA exemptions, the annual certification process for such exemptions and the CFTC proposal that all registrants must be NFA members.
