13H Large Trader  

13H filing requirements by a “large trader” is a person or organization whose trades exceed certain amounts as specified by the SEC: 

  • Trades equal or exceeding 2 million shares or $20 million during any calendar day, or
  • 20 million shares or $200 million during any calendar month

A large trader is required to submit an initial filing on Form 13H within 10 days after the large trader effects aggregate transactions equal to or greater than the identifying activity level.

After filing SEC Form 13H, the Commission will assign a large trader id (LTID), which the large trader must provide to its broker-dealers.

Once 13H Filings are processed through EDGAR they are not posted on the SEC’s website or made publicly available.
