New’n’Closed – 2020 July


As part of a regular exercise, we scan the NFA register for new and closed managers. This report will developed over time and will be a recurring feature. We would like to highlight that some of the closures and registrations are due to corporate (re)structuring and does not necessarily indicate that the manager has shut down their trading program.

The number of managers registered with the NFA declined by 35, which is a higher number than what we have seen recently. After a brief uptick in June, the number of manager continued at approximately the prior speed.

June, featured a a decrease in the number of managers seeking or doing business under the CTA registration. We observed an increase of the number of active CTAs, in line with earlier estimates, with a net loss of 35 managers. We observed 23 new managers and 58 managers closed throughout July.

In total, we have 2633 managers either as registered managers or pending registration with the NFA. We have 2122 managers as properly under the NFA’s control which is unchanged as most of the new managers are “Pending” registration with the NFA.

In June, 23 managers applied for a new registrations with the NFA. As usual, most of them are located in the USA. Vanuatu, with “We One” was the first registration on that particular.
