The United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) recently released its Division of Enforcement’s annual report for fiscal year 2019. This, the second annual report, overviews the prosecution efforts the division took throughout the last year to combat commodities fraud, manipulative behavior and misappropriation of confidential information.
Some of the highlights of the report include the following notes:
It is expected that enforcement activity at the CFTC will continue to come at a steady pace into the new year. As always, the DOE’s enforcement guidelines are to protect customers, preserve market integrity, promote individual accountability and increase its coordination efforts with other criminal authorities and regulatory bodies.
