The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission canceled a meeting to consider rules for protecting customer funds held by futures commission merchants after agency Chairman Gary Gensler injured himself over the weekend.
Gensler “fell at his home in suburban Washington yesterday and suffered a few cracked ribs,” Steven Adamske, the agency’s spokesman, said in an e-mail today. “The meeting scheduled for Wednesday has been canceled, and the subject matters will be handled” in a non-public vote, Adamske said.
