US derivatives giant CME Group has fined StoneX Financial, Inc. (StoneX) $2,000 for violating CME Rules on reports of large positions.
CME requires that clearing members, omnibus accounts and foreign brokers to submit a daily report of all positions required to be reported as set forth in the Position Limit, Position Accountability and Reportable Level Table in the Interpretations Section at the end of Chapter 5.
Positions at or above the reportable level in a particular expiration month of a futures contract, or in all puts or in all calls of a particular option contract expiration month, are required to be reported. For an account with reportable positions in a particular contract, all positions, regardless of size, in any contract month and in any contract that aggregates with that contract must be reported.
The Exchange may require that more than one large trader position report be electronically submitted daily. The Business Conduct Committee or the Market Regulation Department may require reports or additional account identification from any clearing member, omnibus account or foreign broker on a lesser number of positions than reflected in the Position Limit, Position Accountability and Reportable Level Table.
During the month of November 2022, StoneX Financial, Inc. inaccurately reported its large trader positions and submitted position adjustments after the prescribed deadline in several instances of CME and CBT contracts. A fine in the amount of $2,000 was collectively assessed against StoneX for its violations.
