On December 1, the CFTC announced the reopening of its comment period for its Proposed Rules on Position Limits for Derivatives and Aggregation of Positions (comments due by January 22, 2015; see Press Release and statement from CFTC Commissioner Bowen).  The re-opening coincides with an upcoming Agricultural Advisory Meeting, to be held on December 9, which will focus on issues relating to deliverable agricultural commodity supplies in relation to position limits and the agricultural economy (see Federal Register Notice).
