January 16, Chicago - National Futures Association (NFA) has permanently barred Cornerstone Capital Management LLC (Cornerstone) and its principal, Joseph Thomas Profit, Jr. (Profit), from NFA membership. Cornerstone and Profit must also pay a fine of $200,000. Cornerstone is a Commodity Pool Operator and Commodity Trading Advisor. The Decision, issued by an NFA Hearing Panel, is based on a Complaint filed in June 2007.
