Former UBS Trader Fined by US Court for Spoofing

A US District Court in Connecticut has issued a Final Judgment and Consent Order against Andre Flotron, a former precious metals trader for UBS, requiring him to pay a $100,000 civil monetary penalty for spoofing and engaging in a deceptive or manipulative scheme through his spoofing in violation of the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA) and CFTC Regulations.
The Order also imposes a one-year trading and registration ban. Flotron was one of eight traders from three institutions charged by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) over a spoofing scheme.
