CFTC Disaggregated and Traders in Financial Futures Reports

CQG has added more data to the Disaggregated group in the CQG Symbol Finder. Now, both the futures only and the combined futures and options data are available.The Disaggregated reports are broken down by agriculture, petroleum and products, natural gas and products, electricity and metals and other physical contracts.

The Disaggregated reports break down the reportable open interest positions into four classifications:

  1. Producer/Merchant/Processor/User
  2. Swap Dealers
  3. Managed Money
  4. Other Reportables

The Traders in Financial Futures (TFF) report is also included in the Disaggregated group and includes financial contracts, such as currencies, US Treasury securities, Eurodollars, stocks, VIX and Bloomberg commodity index. These reports have a futures only and a combined futures and options report. The TFF report breaks down the reportable open interest positions into four classifications:

  1. Dealer/Intermediary
  2. Asset Manager/Institutional
  3. Leveraged Funds
  4. Other Reportables
