Privacy Act Disclosure
Our legal right to ask for information from traders with large futures or option
market positions is granted in sections 4i and 8 of the Commodity Exchange Act (7
U.S.C. 6i and 12). Disclosure of the information called for is mandatory and failure
to comply may result in the imposition of criminal or administrative sanctions (see
e.g., 7 U.S.C. 9, 213a-1, 13(c)).
The information requested is used generally in the Commission’s market surveillance
activities to provide information concerning the size and composition of the commodity
futures or option markets, and to permit the Commission to monitor and enforce the
speculative position limits that have been established. The complete listing of
routine uses, in accordance with the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. §522a, and the Commission’s
rules thereunder, 17 CFR Part 146, of the information contained in these records
is found in the Commission’s annual notice of its system of records.
Data from the forms may be used by the Commission in the conduct of investigations
or litigation and, in limited circumstances, may be made public in accordance with
provisions of the Commodity Exchange Act. It may also be disclosed to other government
agencies and to contract markets to meet their responsibilities assigned to them
