Movie Box Office Bets on Hold

Under pressure from the film industry, the Commodities Futures Trading Commission on Friday gave itself another week to make a decision on the Trend Exchange, one of two proposals for markets that would trade in derivative contracts on movie box office receipts. As I reported last week, last-minute objections from a coalition including the Motion Picture Association of America brought the approval process to a halt. The CFTC now says it'll wrap no later than April 16.
