September 20, Chicago - National Futures Association (NFA) has ordered Bacera Corporation (Bacera) and its principals, Anthony K. Wong, Hugo C. Valdivia and Elton Hsu, to jointly pay a fine of $50,000. Bacera is a Futures Commission Merchant, Commodity Pool Operator and a Forex Dealer Member, located in Monrovia, California. Bacera must also submit an audit statement to NFA that certifies that the firm is in compliance with NFA Financial Requirements.
