This is the April 2018 edition of my series of posts on new commodity pools registered with the NFA. To keep things interesting I include a list of all the crypto-currency related pools (crypto pools) in the NFA’s commodity pool database, and an analysis of the rate bitcoin pools are being formed.
The post details the changes the SEC has made in the Form ADV October 2017 Version versus the October 2012 Version. We get much more accurate customer profile information. Finally we get information about separately managed accounts, key data when looking at major hedge funds and CTAs.
