Good morning and thank you for the warm welcome. I would like to thank Ruta Gnedeviciute and Energy Risk for inviting me to speak today. Before I begin, I am obligated to remind you that the views I express today are my own and do not represent the views of the Commission, its staff, or any of my fellow Commissioners. I’m very pleased to be here at Energy Risk in my capacity as a CFTC Commissioner. I first attended this conference in May 2008, when I was working on energy issues as a staffer in the United States Senate.
