During the last quarter of 2012, the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission issued a series of no-action letters and other guidance regarding rules issued pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act  to address the practical application of the CFTC’s various new rulemakings.
