Financial crime specialists Rahman Ravelli assess the tough approach being taken by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to allegations of spoofing for Traders Magazine

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s (CFTC) September announcement of a record $920 million settlement with JP Morgan for alleged spoofing in US precious metals and Treasury futures markets prompted Rahman Ravelli to examine the CFTC’s stance.

In an article that was published by Trader Magazine, they assessed the CFTC’s approach and the issues that have arisen in such cases.

Their article scrutinised the anti-spoofing provision (ASP) in the Commodity Exchange Act, which they believes is inherently flawed. With only one district judge having so far ruled that the ASP is constitutional (as applied to manual traders), Rahman Ravelli outlined why they believes that this provides strong grounds for anyone facing such allegations to challenge them in court.
