The CFTC, in conjunction with the fallout from the Libor scandal, has upped the ante on financial penalties in recent weeks.
CFTC chairman Gary Gensler went before Congress on Wednesday to outline the CFTC’s achievements and to make a case for more funding.
CFTC member Bart Chilton has renewed his call for Congress to raise the maximum penalty for financial rule violations.
Barney Frank is making one last push for an SEC-CFTC merger before his retirement.
The CFTC will likely be at odds with new GOP Financial Services Committee head, Jeb Hensarling.
The SEC will have a new chairwoman beginning on Dec. 14. Mary Schapiro, the current chairwoman and Obama administration appointee, will step down.
The CFTC will meet this Thursday to decide which swaps will require clearing at clearinghouses owned by CME Group Inc. and ICE.
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) will move forward with an appeal of a federal court’s decision against position limits.
Calls for the CFTC and SEC to merge are now coming from both sides of the aisle.
