NFA bars NY firm Capital FX LLC and its principal

February 5, Chicago - National Futures Association (NFA) has accepted Capital FX LLC's (CFX) settlement offer to permanently withdraw from NFA membership. CFX is a Commodity Trading Advisor located in Elizaville, New York. Additionally, NFA ordered Robert W. Pecord, its sole principal and employee, to permanently withdraw from NFA membership. The Decision, issued by NFA's Business Conduct Committee, is based on an NFA Complaint filed in December 2009 and a settlement offer submitted by CFX and Pecord.

The Complaint charged that CFX and Pecord provided false and misleading information to NFA and failed to cooperate with NFA in its investigation of the firm. The Complaint also charged CFX with using an inaccurate disclosure document.

The complete text of the Complaint and Decision can be found on NFA's website (www.nfa.futures.org).
