The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) is a U.S. federal agency established in 1974, responsible for regulating the futures and options markets to ensure their integrity and protect market participants from fraud, manipulation, and abusive practices. It oversees a broad range of commodity derivatives trading, including agricultural products, energy, metals, and financial instruments. The CFTC’s mandate includes enforcing rules set forth in the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA), fostering transparent and competitive markets, and providing oversight of registered futures exchanges, clearinghouses, swap dealers, and other market intermediaries. Through its regulatory framework and enforcement actions, the CFTC aims to maintain market stability and promote fair trading practices across the commodities and derivatives landscape.
