Reporting Level

The level of a position one must have in a futures contract at which one must file daily reports with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. An investor with an exceptionally large long position in a futures contract has the ability to disproportionately affect the price of both the contract and the underlying commodity, especially if the market is unaware of the position's size. Thus, an investor with a position above the reporting level must file reports with the CFTC in order to increase transparency in the market and help ensure smooth trades. It is also called the reporting limit.
