Commodity Exchange Act (CEA)
The Commodity Exchange Act (CEA) is a legislative framework that regulates the trading and investment of commodity futures in the United States. It encompasses a variety of commodities, such as metals, agricultural products, energy, technology instruments, and global markets. Since its inception in 1936, the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA) has undergone several amendments and has been enforced by the United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) since 1974. The core aims of the CEA are to uphold the integrity of futures markets, combat market manipulation, and deter fraudulent investment practices.
