Commodity Trading Advisors

A Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) provides commodity trading advice as to the value of trading futures contracts, options on futures, retail off-exchange forex contracts or swaps.

There are specific proficient requirements to be registered as a CTA.  The National Futures Association (NFA) requires CTA registration as the self-regulatory organization of the industry.  At My RIA Lawyer, we provide a variety of commodity trading advisor services that help you become registered and stay in compliance.

The regulations for CTAs date back to the late 1970s as commodity market investing became more accessible to retail investors.  The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has gradually expanded the requirements for CTA registration over time.

A CTA must comply with NFA rules and CFTC regulations.  From annual CTA requirements, books and records, business continuity, cybersecurity, disclosure, reporting, sales practices, self-examination and supervision requirements, we take care of all CTA regulatory obligations. Let My RIA Lawyer show you how our commodity trading advisor services can help you remain compliant of all current laws and regulations.

We Are
My RIA Lawyer

“In life, it’s not that we don’t have enough time; it’s that we lose so much of it. We waste time on things that can be outsourced instead of spending time on things and people we love. I’d rather pay someone to clean my house and take that time to spend with my children. Our clients are happier letting us ‘clean house’ while they work with their clients. In the end, they have more satisfaction in their businesses and they’re happier overall.”
