CFTC Strategic Plan 2020-2024, May 2020 ( PDF)
Since the passage of the CEA, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and its predecessor agencies have been responsible for ensuring the fair, open and efficient functioning of futures markets – we have met that challenge. After the 2008 financial crisis, and the subsequent enactment of the Dodd-Frank Act, the CFTC‘s mission was expanded to include, for the first time, oversight of the swaps marketplace. The Commission still has much work to do to effectively complete implementation of the Dodd-Frank Act and police the over-the-counter markets. Once implemented, derivatives dealers will be subject to robust oversight. Standardized derivatives will be required to trade on open platforms and be submitted for clearing to central counterparties, all of which will be subject to Federal regulation and supervision.
