We have recently upgraded the graphics for our trackers. The insights are probably not very surprising. Most CTAs are located in areas with higher economic activity, such as the New York and where the CTA registration is more natural (US). Thus, these places will have a high proportion of the registered managed futures managers.
The US represents 83% of all Managed Futures managers and New York, Illinois, California and Texas represent more than half of the managers in the US. Probably not that surprising.
The decline in the number of registered managers have continued throughout May.
