COMMODITY FUTURES TRADING COMMISSION (CFTC) go back


The Commodity Futures Trading Commission, an independent regulatory agency under the direction of the Senate Agricultural Committee, regulates trading on the 11 U.S. futures exchanges which offer active futures and options contracts. It reviews the terms of proposed futures contracts, and registers companies and individuals that handle customer funds or give trading advice. The commission regulates the activities of commodity exchange members, public brokerage houses (futures commission merchants), commission-registered futures sales people and associated persons, and commodity trading advisers and commodity pool operators. The commission ensures that the futures trading process is fair and that it protect both the rights of customers and the financial integrity of the marketplace.
