Large Trader


Large Trader
A futures trader who holds or controls a single position that is equal to or greater than the CFTC specified reporting levels.

Reporting levels, which require either the firm or the large trader to provide the necessary reporting documentation, change for different underlying commodities. These surveillance measures are meant to protect investors, maintain speculation levels, facilitate orderly markets and prevent price manipulation.
