Call to the Floor: CME Group

Curbing speculation in the commodities markets — that's the goal of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, which on Thursday revealed plans to apply hard position limits on spot contracts.

But such limits will actually hike food and oil prices for everyone, according to CME Group executive chairman Terry Duffy.

To further explain his point, the 51-year-old executive appeared on Thursday's "Fast Money." Watch the video to see the full interview.

After the broadcast we talked a little more with Duffy. Check out what he told us in this web exclusive video—see below!
