The CME, which is seeing an unprecedented exodus in trading and customers due to the recent fiascoes at MF Global and Peregrine Financial, and which is completely helpless to do anything about what is fundamentally a core feature of modern US ‘capital markets’, has resorted to the last ditch effort of every failing enterprise: writing and mailing letters to clients full of hollow promises. “We want you to know that CME Group is committed to making whatever changes are necessary to strengthen customer protections, restore confidence in the futures industry and ensure the effectiveness of these critical markets.” Or until the next MFG or PFG at least. Sorry: too little, too late.
