4. Position Limits and Hedge Exemptions in Energy and Agriculture

Woodrow Wilson B

This session will review recent developments relating to the imposition of position limits and the availability of hedge exemptions in the U.S. energy and agricultural markets, with a focus on legislative and regulatory initiatives to address the role of speculators and investors. Topics will include the obligations of the speculators and the intermediary, whether it be an FCM in a futures market or an OTC swaps dealer. The panel will also consider comparable initiatives in overseas jurisdictions.
