Comment Letter Responding to CFTC’s Proposed Rule on the Prohibition of Market Manipulation

MFA submitted comments to the CFTC in response to its request for comments on its proposed rule on the Prohibition of Market Manipulation. In our letter, we urge the CFTC to adopt rules and guidance that effectively clarify the rights and obligations of market participants. We believe that greater guidance in this area will clarify the lines between permissible and impermissible conduct and allow market participants to develop proper internal controls.
