New’n’Closed – 2020 June


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 indicate that the manager has shut down their trading program.

For the first time since we started to monitor the pace of openings and closings amongst CTAs, we observed a net increase in the number of managers.

June, featured a a small increase 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 gain of 3 managers. We observed 26 new managers and 29 managers closed throughout June.

In total, we have 2670 managers either as registered managers or pending registration with the NFA. We have 2122 managers as properly under the NFA’s control which is a small decline as most of the new managers are “Pending” registration with the NFA.

In June, 29 managers applied for a new registrations with the NFA. As usual, most of them are located in the USA. Columbia saw a rare new registration, as Clockwork filed for registration.
