How are the futures markets regulated?

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has jurisdiction to regulate the futures markets with oversight over the entire industry. Each U.S. futures exchange operates as a self-regulatory organization governing its floor brokers, traders and member firms. National Futures Association regulates every firm or individual that conducts futures trading business with the investing public.

NFA is the premier independent provider of efficient and innovative regulatory programs that safeguard the integrity of the derivatives markets.
