Shlomi Salant agreed to pay a fine of US $30,000 and serve a 10-day trading suspension related to allegations by the Chicago Board of Trade that he engaged in spoofing-type activities at various times from September 2011 through December 2012. According to the CME Group, during this time, Mr. Salant on occasion placed orders to buy or sell a small quantity of 10-Year Note futures, and subsequently entered multiple large lot orders on the opposite side of his small order to “create an appearance of imbalance in the buy/sell pressure.” As soon as the small order began trading, claimed the CBoT, Mr. Salant cancelled his large orders. Mr. Salant was charged with violating various CBoT general offenses, including engaging “in conduct inconsistent with just and equitable principles of trade.” The facts at issue in this matter occurred prior to CME Group’s adoption of its recent disruptive trading practices rule (Rule 575).
