I keep on seeing this story about a CFTC judge being aaccused of not acting fairly in cases. I won't comment on the verity as I don't have the records in front of me.

I do, however have to comment on the fact that all of the journalists I have read so far have failed to point out that most commodity cases involving reparations go in front of an arbitration panel at the National Futures Association (NFA). http://www.nfa.futures.org

Most experienced futures traders or brokers would tell you that a case before the CFTC would be their last resort, mostly because of the time and expense involved.

As always: Trading in futures and options is very high risk investing. You can lose all or more of the money you invest. Only risk capital should be used.
