andy-0101 My name in Andrew Abraham. I have been investing in commodities and managed futures since 1994. I adhere to the philosophy of trend following. Trend following stresses a disciplined approach to commodity/ futures trading. Successful trend following and commodity futures investing requires patience, discipline and actively managing the risk. What sets me apart from other traders is that I am not only concerned about the return on investment but how much risk I will have to tolerate to achieve my goals.

Senator Stabenow- Review investment rules after MF Global

This is a recent article in the Detroit News

Senator Stabenow is leading the charge for Justice for the clients of MF Global. It has been 35 days and our money has been stolen. The regulators need to be replaced.

Stabenow: Review investment rules

Washington— Sen. Debbie Stabenow, head of the Senate Agriculture Committee looking into the collapse of commodities brokerage firm MF Global Inc., said lawmakers may need to tighten rules limiting where customers’ money can be invested.
Some exemptions, such as allowing the investment of customer money in foreign government debt, should be reviewed, Stabenow, D-Lansing, told reporters after a committee hearing with financial regulators.
MF Global Holdings Ltd., the parent company of the broker run by former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, filed for bankruptcy after betting $6.3 billion on bonds of some of Europe’s most indebted nations.
Corzine used repurchase agreements, or deals to repurchase in the near future at an agreed-upon price, to execute the European debt trade.
“How is it possible that someone is able to bet the farm here, multiple times over, and it disappears from the balance sheet because of this repo-to-maturity technique?” asked Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D.
The trustee overseeing the liquidation of MF Global has estimated $1.2 billion or more may be missing from customer accounts. Many of these customers aren’t speculators, but farmers and small businesses using the accounts to trade futures to hedge their risks and lock in a price on commodities that fluctuate in value.
“They gave their money to someone on Wall Street who lost it — that’s not acceptable,” Stabenow said.
Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., said those he’s spoken with say they have recovered about 60 percent of their funds.
Mary Schapiro, chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, said her agency is investigating MF Global’s disclosures to investors of its holdings of risky debt and its accounting before it failed.
Gary Gensler, the chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, stepped aside from his agency’s probe last month. He cited his past relationship with Corzine as the reason. The two had worked together at Goldman Sachs.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the Financial Accounting Standards Board are investigating the legality of the deals.
Stabenow has asked Corzine to come before the panel Dec. 13. She said it had not yet heard from him and did not rule out issuing a subpoena: “Everything is on the table.”

1 comment to Senator Stabenow- Review investment rules after MF Global

  • Well i will tell you why Stabenow is such a proponent of implementing a “standards or fairness doctrine” . Senator Stabenow from Michigan is married to Tom Atlans a former executive for Air America the left wing liberal radio network. As we all know by now Air America has been forced into bankruptcy due to very low ratings. Doesn’t this seem like a little “conflict of interest” to you ?
