The Commodity Futures Trading Commission is a U.S. federal agency established to regulate the commodity futures and options markets. Created in 1974 under the Commodity Exchange Act, the CFTC’s primary mission is to protect market participants from fraud, manipulation, and abusive practices, while also fostering transparent and competitive futures and options markets. The CFTC oversees futures exchanges, clearinghouses, commodity pool operators, commodity trading advisors, and other market participants, ensuring compliance with its regulations aimed at promoting market integrity and reducing systemic risk. Through its enforcement actions, rulemaking initiatives, market surveillance, and educational efforts, the CFTC strives to maintain fair and efficient markets for commodities like agricultural products, energy, metals, and financial instruments, thereby supporting price discovery and risk management for businesses and investors.
