What is Position Limit?
Position limit refers to the ceiling placed on the number of contracts on a single security which may be held by an individual or cooperative group.
How Does Position Limit Work?
Determined by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), position limits place an upper limit on the number of contracts which an investor or combined group of investors may hold for a specific security. For instance, the CFTC may specify a position limit of no more than 15 contracts per investing party on stock XYZ.
