Commodity Options and Agricultural Swaps
March 29, 2011
From the comment letter:
"In the case of several agricultural commodities, excessive speculation and volatility has rendered the futures market almost unusable for both buyers and sellers of the physical commodity and its end-users because the financial resources required to support both physical and futures positions have become such a burden that they impede interstate commerce."
