The UK’s Financial Conduct Authority has published a position limits page, which lists the contracts on which a “bespoke” limit will be set before 3rd January 2018, under the MiFID II position limits rules. The page can be found here.
The list only includes contracts which:
- Are under the FCA’s jurisdiction, i.e. the venue is based in the UK.
- Are “bespoke” – i.e. are not considered either “new” or “illiquid”. Non bespoke contracts attract a limit of 2,500 lots by default.
The actual limit levels are not specified. Last month, ESMA published the first limits, set by France’s AMF, on certain agricultural derivative contracts (see here).
