A brief explanation of LPR
Treasury's large position reporting rules (17 CFR Part 420) provide an on-demand reporting system that requires entities controlling a position in a particular Treasury security (or securities) equaling or exceeding a specified threshold to submit a large position report.
This lets Treasury observe monitor the impact of concentrations of positions in the Treasury securities market.
Treasury does not believe that large positions are inherently problematic, and there is no presumption of manipulative or illegal intent merely because an entity's position is large enough to subject it to Treasury's large position reporting regulations.
