Summary of the Rule on Prohibition of Market Manipulation

WHAT’S THE RULE? The Commodity Futures Trading Commission on July 14 published a final rule on the prohibition of market manipulation, which gives the agency  new powers to go after fraud.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT? The rule would help prevent market abuses that contributed to financial crisis, which led to unprecedented bailout of big banks, massive job loss, and an economy that neared collapse.
