NFA permanently bars Mitchell B. Goldberg, a former associated person of Protrade Futures & Options and Corporate Commodities, Inc.

March 13, Chicago - National Futures Association (NFA) has permanently barred from NFA membership, Mitchell B. Goldberg, a former associated person (AP) of Protrade Futures & Options (Protrade) and Corporate Commodities, Inc. (CCI).

The Decision, issued by NFA's Hearing Panel, is based on a Complaint filed in August 2006, and a settlement offer submitted by Goldberg.
