A major new market for commodities futures, which have been highly volatile since the 2008 financial crisis, is about to get a major boost.
“I am pleased to announce that the CFTC has granted a final exemption to this important commodity futures market,” said Commodity Futures Trading Commission Chairman Matthew M. Garber, Jr., in announcing the decision.
The exemption, which the CFTP is required to make in order to keep its futures market open, is the first of its kind.
A few years ago, the CFTS had allowed futures markets for a few other commodities.
But these were not regulated in the same way as commodities like oil, gold and other commodities that have historically been traded in the open markets.
As a result, they could be overpriced and out of reach of many investors.
But with the CFTD’s exemption, these markets are regulated as “commodities futures,” which means they are subject to stricter rules than other commodities markets.
They also provide greater transparency and transparency is important to investors.
“In the last two years, we have seen a remarkable increase in the amount of activity on this market, particularly with the emergence of futures contracts for commodities like gold and oil,” said Garber.
“The demand for commodities has increased dramatically, and the CFT has made an enormous investment in this market.
With this exemption, the commodity futures industry can continue to offer our customers access to the greatest amount of information about commodity futures.”
While there have been plenty of problems in the commodities futures market, this new exemption gives investors the best of both worlds.
For the first time, it allows the CFTB to continue to regulate commodities futures while allowing for the most accurate pricing available to investors in the futures market.
The futures market is expected to provide some major upside for futures traders, which means a lot of investors will be able to get their hands on their new assets.
“This is a huge relief for futures investors who have been waiting to see their money move in the market for a while now,” said Andrew M. Cohen, founder and CEO of the Commodities Futures Technology Association.
“This exemption provides an important lifeline to our industry and gives us the opportunity to offer a much more accurate, stable, transparent, and secure market.”
“We’re pleased that the Commission will take the time to examine this important aspect of the futures industry, and we look forward to working with the Commoderates and the industry to further enhance the futures trading environment,” said Scott J. Cohen Jr., President and CEO, Commodites Futures.
