Apparently last year's failed witch hunt to "prove" that hedge funds were behind $150 barrels of oil has done little to change the CFTC's mind about where spikes in commodity prices come from. In addition to pondering whether or not to set position limits on commodity futures contracts, the CFTC will now break down hedge fund positions on its weekly Commitments of Traders report. The CFTC will now have the transparency and data it so desperately wants so the world can see that it can't prove its own conspiracy theory.
