Mathew Marcus and his company, Tech Power Inc., agreed to settle charges brought by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission in connection with an alleged scheme that utilized pre-arranged, noncompetitive matched trades involving single stock futures traded on One Chicago. This scheme was used, said the CFTC, to impermissibly transfer US $390,000 from an account in the name of a law firm to Tech Power. The respondents agreed to pay a fine of US $250,000 to resolve this matter.
