JMJ is a Commodity Pool Operator Member located in Miami, Florida. Joel Garcia and Rafael Carnicer, principals and associated persons (APs) of JMJ, are also barred from NFA membership for a period of ninety days. In the event that Garcia and Carnicer reapply for membership, they must pay a $25,000 fine.
