CFTC Issues Permanent Revocation of Ted Brent Alexander's CTA and AP Registrations

2024-06-14 BrokersView

The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) issued an opinion and order revoking the registrations of Ted Brent Alexander of Jackson, Mississippi. The CFTC action was based on Alexander’s guilty plea to conspiracy to commit wire fraud in a federal criminal case. 


Alexander has been registered with the CFTC as a Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) and Associated Person (AP) since October 2008. On April 26, 2003, Alexander pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in United States v. Alexander. 


On November 13, 2023, a judgment of conviction was entered against Alexander. Because Alexander’s guilty plea involved a crime involving one or more of embezzlement, theft, fraud, fraudulent conversion, misappropriation of funds, securities, or property, and/or false pretenses, federal commodity laws allow Alexander’s registrations to be permanently revoked.


The CFTC’s order finds that Alexander is subject to statutory disqualification from registration with the CFTC under Section 8a(2)(D)(iii) of the CEA and permanently revokes Alexander’s registrations under the terms of the order. 


Alexander, who admitted the charges in the Notice of Intent, consented to the entry of a CFTC order that revokes his registrations as a CTA and AP.
