Lawmakers in Washington are blaming excessive speculation for rising energy prices and are demanding greater regulation of the commodity markets, including stricter position limits and more extensive reporting requirements for commodity futures and over-the-counter commodity swaps. In response, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission has stepped up its market surveillance and may well receive a substantial increase in funding next year. A panel of experts will discuss the changes to the legal environment and the implications for managing a futures brokerage business.
