Market Conduct Training

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Exchanges are imposing harsh penalties on traders who violate market conduct rules — and on the firms that employ them or facilitate their trading.

The range of prohibited trading activities is broad and complex, and regulators have made it clear that ignorance of the rules is no excuse. Anyone who accesses the markets directly or on behalf of others must understand the mechanics and consequences of engaging in:

  • Spoofing
  • Messaging Violations
  • Wash Sales
  • Market Manipulation
  • Pre-Arranged Trading
  • Non-Competitive Trading
  • Front-Running
  • Insider Trading
