Panel II: Current Developments in Energy and Commodities Regulatory Enforcement

As both the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”) continue to take aggressive enforcement action against market manipulation, both agencies continue to grapple with questions about their jurisdictional authority in the energy/commodities markets, and what types of activities constitute “manipulation” in these markets. This panel of experts reviews the evolving enforcement positions of both the FERC and CFTC. The panelists focus on the current trends in agency enforcement actions, including the prosecution of spoofing activities, disruptive trading practices, among others. This panel also offers insight into confronting an enforcement action instituted by multiple agencies enforcing manipulation rules in both the energy and commodities markets.

This panel of experts reviews the evolving enforcement positions of federal financial institution regulators, with particular emphasis on challenges and strategies to consider when confronting an enforcement action by a federal financial institution regulatory agency.
